Hmmmmm....a mysterious pose. What is that little device he's holding? I haven't a clue. Could this be the one about a fountain?

I think that's a harmonica in his hand. He was good at playing what some people would call a country bumpkin.

I think it's a Kodak camera in his hands.


That would make this photo from Jess Birdwell: The Unsuspected Story (aka Friendly Persuasion II) in which the intrepid Jess Birdwell makes unexpected trips to Indianapolis where he has a room in a boarding house, a chiffarobe full of fancy suits, and a camera for taking pictures of naughty ladies.

Don't think is a Kodak camera. Only Minox made cameras that small when movie was made.??
Probably drawing instruments.

Never heard of that brand .
Hohner owned 98% of the harmonica market at that time.
Where can I find such instrument? Am very interested.

Don't jump John Doe !


According to his autobiography, Frank Capra acknowledged that five different versions of the ending of MEET JOHN DOE were filmed and audience-tested before he arrived at the decision to release the fifth one for the 3 May 1941 national release. Capra also admitted that he was not satisfied with any of the endings that he shot, and that at one point, during the film's first run, following its 12 March 1941 premieres, three different versions of the film were playing in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Washington. One of the five versions ended in John jumping from the City Hall roof, while another had Ann and D. B. Norton talking him out of suicide. The fifth and final version of the end was suggested to the director by way of an anonymous letter, signed "John Doe," which read: "...I have seen your film with many different endings...all bad, I thought...The only thing that can keep John Doe from jumping are the John Does themselves...if they ask him." In an interview, Capra admitted that "for seven-eighths of the picture we had a fine, fine thing going for us there; the very end collapsed like a brick sock."
