This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark Feature: 1941’s “Meet John Doe”


Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday night (June 30 & July 1) for this week’s “LRPA After Dark” encore presentation of 1941’s romantic comedy “Meet John Doe,” starring Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck. 


In “Meet John Doe,” the viewer is introduced to columnist Ann Mitchell (Stanwyck), who has been laid off from her newspaper due to budget cuts. In her last act at the paper, Ann composes and prints a fake letter in her column from an anonymous, down-on-his luck man who threatens to jump from the roof of City Hall on Christmas Eve as a protest against the mistreatment of the little man and continued societal injustices. She signs the letter “John Doe.” The column becomes a sensation, selling papers and creating loads of interest from the public. Everyone wants to meet John Doe! The editor is delighted with the sensation that the column has created, but is dismayed when Ann reveals that the story is bogus. The two decide to hire an unemployed man to impersonate John Doe, eventually settling on Long John Willoughby (Cooper), a former baseball pitcher whose bad arm has forced him out of the game and into hard times. He is kind, quiet and a bit naïve: just the man for the job. John Doe’s story and popularity begin to spread, and local “John Doe” political clubs begin to spring up around the country. At first, Willoughby enjoys the attention and perks that come with being John Doe, but soon starts to see that many people want to use him for their own benefit. The newspaper’s publisher, D.B. Norton (supporting actor Edward Arnold), wants to use Doe’s popularity to run for political office. When Willoughby realizes what’s happening, he faces a moral dilemma: should he expose Norton and condemn his plan? If he does so, what happens to his own credibility and his future?


Directed by Frank Capra, “Meet John Doe” is considered to be one of the director’s finest films. The plot’s concerns were a favorite of the director: how does an ordinary man make his way, against all odds, in a difficult situation? Film historians see this movie as the final film in Capra’s trilogy about American Individualism, the other two being “Mr. Deeds Goes to Town” and “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.” It is Capra’s powerful indictment of the dangers of Fascism and “group think.” “Meet John Doe” was huge success with movie goers and critics alike. It was one of the top grossing films of the year, and helped to cement Gary Cooper’s status as a film legend. Maybe you’ve never had the pleasure of seeing “Meet John Doe.” If that’s true, then meet us on the couch, grab your popcorn and join LRPA after dark for this heartwarming “dramedy” from the past. 



Letter To The Editor

Part of the Rape Culture?


Earlier this week, I heard Rep. Debra Altschiller (Stratham) talk about a speech she made on the House floor - and the reaction to it - on the topic of “rape culture.”


An attention-getting term, at its worst, it refers to the serial sexual assaults perpetrated by Bill Cosby, or the assault by Aaron Labrie at St. Paul’s School, carrying forward the tradition of “senior salute.” It results in one in three women reporting having been sexually assaulted.


In the NH House, she pointed out there are two Representatives who have been convicted of assault: Frank Sapareto (Derry) and Jim Spillane (Deerfield, Nottingham, Candia). Remarkably, the former serves on the Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety!


Two have left: Kyle Tasker, now serving time for seeking to seduce what he thought was a 14-year-old girl, and Robert Fisher, host of a misogynistic website.


At its base, this culture begins with the demeaning and disrespecting of women and girls. Seeing them as less able and less worthy, emphasizing their sexuality rather then their mentality. Think Barbie dolls.


It was to address this situation that Rep. Altschiller rose to speak, by “unanimous consent” - a parliamentary nicety that gives the floor to all who wish to address the House on matters on a specific bill. How did the House respond? Many Republican representatives walked out, unwilling to grant their colleague the courtesy of their attention.


Northwood’s representative, Brian J. Stone, tweeted, “You’re lucky we even let you speak. Unanimous consent is not for you to grandstand.”


For whom this “we” do you speak, Brian? And why the disrespect?
