Feature - 'Meet John Doe'
KCET is recreating the moviegoing experience from the Golden Age of Hollywood and invites viewers to meet the original artists from the silver screen! Classic Cool Theater is a weekly 120-minute series, which will include a classic cartoon, a feature film, a newsreel, and a musical short. The weekly program debuts with Frank Capra's 1941 Academy Award Nominated film and all time Classic "Meet John Doe" starring Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwick.
Gary Cooper is a down-and-out Everyman who is thrust into the public eye because of a newspaper story written by reporter Barbara Stanwyck. The publicity spawns a political philosophy in the country and, when others take over the movement, Cooper's character considers a drastic move. One of Frank Capra's most memorable films.
