#55. Meet John Doe (1941) - Review

Meet John Doe (1941) film posterFrank Capra’s Meet John Doe falls right in line with his other schmaltzy populist pictures. I must admit I am not the biggest fan of Capra, I find his films to be overly sentimental in the worst possible way. If you like his other films, you will undoubtedly be charmed by this one as well. This is coming from a die hard Barbara Stanwyck fan, but even her performance (which must have been the main influence on Jennifer Jason Leigh in The Hudsucker Proxy) could keep my typically devoted attention.
