Babe Bennett

Babe Bennett

Babe Bennett, also called by her false name Pam Dawson, is Longfellow Deeds' love interest and a minor villainess-turned-heroine in the movie, Mr. Deeds.

Babe is a tabloid journalist whose greedy boss, Mac McGrath, assigns her to spy on Deeds and pretend to date him under the alias Pam Dawson.  As the two begin to genuinely fall in love, Babe begins to feel more and more remorseful for lying to Deeds until the truth about her finally emerges.  After she redeems herself in the end, she marries Deeds.

She was portrayed by Winona Ryder, who is best known for her portrayal of Abigail Williams from The Crucible.
