MEET  JOHN  DOE (USA 1941). 

Dir. by Frank Capra.

Gary Cooper, Barbara Stanwyck

Everyone knows Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life, but what about  his forgotten earlier film with a very similar theme?  The hero is just an ordinary guy whom the press and the politicians take up, and then betray.  He faces death on Christmas Eve in a howling blizzard.  But Capra’s film is full of his warm humour and philosophy of life.
