Classic social drama directed by Frank Capra. 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'. She 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.

Frank Capra's formula is monotonously repeated across his oeuvre, and this film is no exception. Idealistic "little guy" comes up against corrupt fat-cats who want to exploit the American people, he's disillusioned, but then the American spirit of patriotism and community heartwarmingly shines through. Swelling music, actor with tear-filled eyes--the end. Yawn. Barbara Stanwyck is slick and fiesty and generally her awesome self, Gary Cooper is his dull taciturn self. But they can't make this film less corny or boring.
