I was disappointed with this movie. Definitely no Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. In fact, a big problem with the movie was that Gary Cooper seems to be trying too hard to be like Jimmy Stewart. However this movie was made a full three years before Stewart had become a full fledged star.
Stewart would have been perfect in the role of the surly, eccentric small town poet with a heart of gold who inherits 20 million dollars and goes to the big city.
Cooper was kind of blah. The movie was kind of blah.
Has anyone seen the Adam Sandler remake?
