Description
Barbara Stanwyck stars as ambitious news journalist Ann Mitchell, who is fired by the paper's new owners in "Meet John Doe" (1941). Determined to resurrect her job, Mitchell contrives a scheme in her last days at the paper. She prints a fraudulent suicide note which she claims was delivered by an anonymous John Doe. His angst will end on Christmas Eve when he kills himself, and public support immediately pours in. In a secret plan, Mitchell's boss recruits an unemployed man (Gary Cooper) to impersonate Doe, who woos the public. This 70th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition is essential viewing for fans of classic movies.

    Comments about this product:

    This is a 1941 drama with quirks of humor. It is a Frank Capra classic starring Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck with costars of Walter Brennan and Edward Arnold.

    My DVD does not have the same cover picture. The movie is the same. I have watch this movie many times. The message is still the same, take a moment to get to know your neighbor! For instance, hearing aids are not covered by medical insurance. Give a little understanding, they are not so horrible.

    They were still recovering from the great depression. This movie defined that era rather well. Then Arnold used them for his own purposes, ugly. Just watch. If you are a collector, buy this.
