| I thought it was pretty good...
This T.V show flopped in midyear during a time when most networks kept even bad shows on for at least a year. Hard to see why. This show, based on the movie starring Gary Cooper, was an interesting one about a simple country man who inherits a vast financial fortune, including an unspecified corporation which controled groups of manufacturing and real estate properties. Monte Markham, who played Longfellow Deeds, was convincing in the role. Unlike the movie, Deeds plays a more active role in managing the corporations businesses---often with humorous results. Check out Pat Harrington's performance as the highly elegant,erudite Executive Assistant to Deeds. He sure wasn't "Schneider" of "One Day at a Time" in this show. He did a great job as well.
