A social drama from director Frank Capra and shown in its original theatrical release version. After penning a letter of protest at the corruption and hypocrisy of the day and threatening to throw himself off the roof of City Hall, 'John Doe' becomes a national hero. Doe is in fact Ann Mitchell (Barbara Stanwyck), who was fired from her job on the paper and wrote the letter as a parting shot to the editor. Mitchell is re-hired but needs to find someone to play 'John Doe' and manages to persuade Long John Willoughby (Gary Cooper), a penniless former baseball star, into representing the common man in a national goodwill drive. He eventually exposes the political chicanery, but only at the cost of branding himself a fake. This film is often seen to be part of an unofficial Capra trilogy, the others being 'Mister Deeds Goes to Town' and 'Mister Smith Goes to Washington'.
