To further his presidential aspirations, oil tycoon D.B. Norton buys a newspaper, renames it, and tells managing editor Connell to downsize. After being fired, cheeky reporter Ann Mitchell retaliates in her final story by creating John Doe, who writes a "Letter to the Editor," describing his disgust at the state of the world, capped by a threat to commit suicide on New Year's Eve in protest. John Doe's story causes an instant media sensation, so Ann finds a bum to "play" him. She selects former minor league ballplayer turned hobo Long John Willoughby, who goes along with the scheme. Soon he's making motivational speeches on the radio, and becoming a popular national figure, while corporate misbehavior, consumerism, and the attempted subversion of the resultant popular movement follow. Can Willoughby become the figure of integrity and principle he had only pretended to be? Even if it means sacrificing himself so that the real John Doe's can be saved?

Mae West the glamour collection( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mae West had an inexhaustibly playful interest in language, and a rare, sometimes perplexing, and even lofty wit, spiced by low-down slang. Well before the second wave of feminism, she wrote all her own material, insisted on total control of her work, and was wildly popular for a short time, right before the Production Code lowered the boom on adult attitudes being expressed in films. She made only 12 movies, but three are first-rate, and these were enough to seal her fame and launch a legend. In her first film appearance, "Night after night," a successful ex-boxer buys a high-class speakeasy and falls for a rich society girl. As the bold Tira in "I'm no angel," she works as a dancing beauty and lion tamer at a fair. For "Goin' to town," West goes Western. Cleo Borden is a former dance hall queen who has become newly rich. She falls for--and pursues--an upper crust Englishman. This is followed by "Go west young man," where she plays Mavis Arden, a movie star stranded in the country. To stifle her boredom, she trifles with a young man's affections. "My little chickadee" pairs West with a legend of similar stature, W.C. Fields. As Flower Belle Lee, she is rightly suspected of illicit relations with the Masked Bandit, and run out of Little Bend. Surprisingly, things change very little when she arrives in Greasewood City to start over
