    Meet John Doe (1941) — (Movie Clip) The Greed, The Lust, The Hate, The Fear

    Staff-slashing editor Connell (James Gleason) doesn’t know that Ann (Barbara Stanwyck), whom he fired the day before, invented “John Doe,” whose suicidal letter she featured in her final column, cueing her brilliant speech to win back her job, in Frank Capra’s Meet John Doe, 1941.
