Big City Gal Marries Small Town Doctor
9 November 2004 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Physician Pat O'Brien brings his new bride, Josephine Hutchinson to his hometown of Williamsburg somewhere in red state America where he's built his practice. Josephine's sophistication is a bad fit for Williamsburg and she gets the tail-feathers of the town's leading ladies all in an uproar.

She has one kindred spirit in Ross Alexander who's the son of a Swedish farmer. But Ross aspires to bigger and better things, as an artist or an architect. Ross mistakes Josephine's support of him for romance and that sets the stage for a whole lot of gossip, misunderstanding and ultimately, tragedy.

The problem with this picture is that it can't make up its mind. Small town America is shown with all the warts it has, but the people who don't like it have plenty of warts too. Ross Alexander is a weak character, he's a dreamer who just won't get off his rear end and leave. He'd rather just dream and he really gets off on being the misunderstood genius.

Not wanting to offend anybody, Warner Brothers solves the problem with a 100% guaranteed solution of love conquers all.

It's a very typical B film from Warners, probably played the second half of double bills with a lot of better product from that studio.
