Did You Know?


The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

No medicine, but great music
30 April 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The fifth of the six Dr. Christian films finds the kindly old doc taking an interest in a young man he's known all his life. Young Billy Stanley played by Schuyler Standish is a violin prodigy, nurtured carefully by his mother Fay Wray who is a local music teacher in River's End. It's in the genes because Standish's father is the noted conductor Walter Woolf King who Wray was married to back in their salad days ever so briefly. Of course the young man doesn't know King is his father.

Practicing no medicine in this film but caring a great deal about the welfare of his patients, mother and son, Jean Hersholt stops at nothing to bring about a reconciliation after King's plane crash lands in River's End.

There is a hilarious performance by Irene Ryan as a rival music teacher who brings all her pupils to the hospital for an 'audition'. The din they raise would cause a relapse with any music lover.

The film begins with Brahms and ends with Brahms as some of his gypsy dances get a fine treatment. A bit contrived, but a fine story.
