DOCTOR CHRISTIAN MOVIES starring Gene Hersholt
The plots in the RKO Dr. Christian films involve the conflicts triggered when Tradition meets Progress. The central message being that without the humanity and compassion of traditional values, progress is meaningless (if not downright harmful). Jean Hersholt portrayed the endearing Dr. Paul Christian in six delightful movies released by RKO Radio Pictures between 1939 and 1941. Meet Dr. Christian (1939) Remedy for Riches (1940) The Courageous Dr. Christian (1940) Dr. Christian Meets the Women (1940) Melody for Three (1941) They Meet Again (1941) While medicine is important in these films, it is more of a common-sense kind of healthcare. The real focus of Dr. Christian is his unique position as a small town doctor in the lives of his patients and the ethical responsibility he feels for their well-being -- hence the need for the good doctor to branch out into politics, busting quacks, matchmaking and inspiring local residents of River’s End, Minnesota, to become better citizens. The Dr. Christian film series was inspired by the exploits of a real-world celebrity doctor.
