Meet John Doe-The Audio Drama Part 1

Meet John Doe-The Audio Drama Part 1

A reporter (Barbara Stanwyck) writes a fictitious column about someone named "John Doe," who is distraught at America's neglect of the little people and plans to kill himself by leaping off the Empire State Building on Christmas Eve. The newspaper then hires a ballplayer-turned-hobo (Gary Cooper) to pose as John Doe. In a series of radio addresses written by a publisher, Doe captures the public's fascination. When he finally realizes he has been used for political gain, Doe decides to fulfill his promise to kill himself to save the people from political corruption. (1941)
