"Mr Deeds Goes To Town" (1936) is the story of a naive small-town musician (Gary Cooper) who inherits a fortune, goes to the big city and is taken advantage of and made a laughing stock by the city slickers. All ends well of course. Loved Jean Arthur ( a very underrated actress in my opinion) as the jaded reporter who falls for Mr Longfellow Deeds. Very enjoyable.
"Topper"(1937) with Cary Grant and Constance Bennett as two mischievous
ghosts who must do a good deed before they can "move on". Slightly disappointed in this. It depended a lot on physical comedy and what I can only assume were state of the art special effects back in 1937. On occasion, I could see the "invisible" strings attached to various objects the ghosts were moving around.
