Meet John Doe (Frank Capra, 1941)

Frank Capra

Stars

Four different endings were filmed, but all were ultimately deemed unsatisfactory during previews. A letter from an audience member suggested a fifth ending, which Frank Capra liked and used in the finished film.

Contrary to popular belief, there is no "longer" version of this film; it has always run 123 minutes. However, original publicity erroneously stated it was 132 minutes because the printer accidentally transposed the last two numbers. For years film historians assumed that all reissue prints had been cut by nine minutes until an original fine-grain master was uncovered which also turned out to run 123 minutes. This is the correct running time for the film.

About 200 plumbers were hired to keep the rain falling for eight nights at the Gilmore Field baseball park, Los Angeles, during the filming of John's speech. William Erbes supervised the rain effects, which cost an estimated USD 300,000 to produce.
