is there any good literature/fiction stories or movies on the theme::

"somebody is so very bestowed with favor/power/wealth/influence but that person does not even realize or behaves/lives like they don't know it or believe it or have absorbed it.. for example, a man who got an inheritance of 1B dollars, but lives like he has 10$ only in the bank - the person is not mentally handicapped.. only circumstances cloud their thinking of the reality - they are so naive of their own state"

any themes like this that is available for the public?

The movie 'Mr. Deeds Goes to Town' comes to mind, or more recently just 'Mr. Deeds'.
