Capra. Gary Cooper plays the title character in this quintessential Capra story of a country fellow who inherits a fortune and tries to do the right thing with it, much to the dismay of everyone around him. This lighthearted and witty film is the first to show what would become the Capra trademark: an ordinary man trying to do good and the corrupt officials who try to stop him.

Capra | Silent Tuesdays. Harry Langdon is one of the great silent comedians, but one who has been always difficult to classify; his persona of a childlike man is actually very complex and ambiguous, two elements that give his comedy an unusual edge and constant surprise. His considered reactions to mayhem and his thoughtful but ineffectual attempts to interact with the world around him (not to mention his genuine astonishment when he actually has to deploy his somewhat obscure maturity) make him a fascinating figure.
