Meet John Doe, an adaptation by Michael Bettencourt

This adapation of the 1941 Frank Capra movie by Michael Bettencourt uses Robert Riskin's 1941 shooting script to take a look at the crossroads of celebrity creation and faux democracy -- oddly reminiscent of the situation we find ourselves in today.

Capra shot multiple endings for the movie, not sure how he could end the story he started without savaging some of his own deeply held feelings about America and being American.
