After being laid off from her job as a newspaper columnist , Ann Mitchell (Barbara Stanwyck) prints letter from a fictional "John Doe," threatening suicide in protest of society's ills. When the note causes a sensation and the paper's competition suspects a fraud investigates, her boss is forced to rehire Mitchell who comes up with a scheme of hiding the fictional nature of "John Doe" while exploiting the sensation caused by the letter to boost the newspaper's sales and her own salary. After reviewing a number of derelicts who have shown up at the paper claiming to have written the original suicide note, Ann and Henry Connell (James Gleason) decide to hire John Willoughby (Gary Cooper), a former baseball player, now tramp who needs money to repair his injured arm, to play John Doe.
