Meet John Doe
A reporter writes a column about “John Doe”, an unexciting man who plans to kill himself in protest against America's neglect of the little people. The newspaper then hires Gary Cooper to pose as this fictional John Doe, who captures the public's imagination in a series of radio addresses. From British Pathé TV's Classic Movie Collection.
