Ralph Bellamy Heals the Sick and Gets the Girl
16 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ralph Bellamy, the HEALER, runs a health camp for handicapped children (much like Warm Springs). Will he have "hopeless cripple" Mickey Rooney riding a bicycle, or will he be distracted by the two women fighting for his love?

Although this is reasonably slick and well produced for poverty row stalwart Monogram Pictures, this is a fairly bland piece of work, featuring wooden acting by the supporting cast, and a relatively tension-free plot which can be predicted with reasonable accuracy from moment one. (The only surprise is that some of the conflicts you would expect don't arise, because Ralph is so darn nice, and everyone in the movie is really awfully good-hearted.)

All in all -- not bad. If you like the golden age of Disney live action pictures, you might like this.
