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.See more »

La Traviata, Astrology, Bride of Frankenstein, and ... Imogene Coca?!, 19 September 2007
Author: catherine yronwode from United States

Well, this has to be the very strangest of all the Dr. Christian movies. I like the series -- Jean Hersholt, with his charming Danish accent, makes a warm, friendly small-town Minnesota Dr., his housekeeper Maude Eburn, with her Bride of Frakenstein hairdo, is always amusing (and this time she spouts a continuous line of astrological wisdom which is -- incredibly for a movie -- completely accurate, according to the principles of astrology, and i say this as a professional astrologer, no joke!), and the shy romance between Judy and Bob, the young lovers, is, as ever, fascinatingly off-kilter.

But this time all sorts of strange side-shows are encountered. We get Neil Hamilton at his Leyendecker suit model best (in formal wear, no less) as the Governor, and the great Imogene Coca (uncredited) in a rousing performance as Lulu the romantic maid. And who on earth was the vocal double for little Anne Bennett when she burst into an entire aria from "La Traviata"? I suspect i will never know.

How can i recommend this movie to anyone who is not as weird as i am? I mean, if you want to see Maude Eburn in Bride of Frankenstein hair giving a completely accurate astrological rundown while Imogene Coca swoons on a porch glider and Neil Hamilton proves once again that he has the slickest hair and the straightest posture in town -- and you can stand hearing an entire aria from "La Traviata" mouthed by cute little Anne Bennett as Janie, who had earlier received a Shirley Temple doll for her birthday (the perfect gift for an aspiring child actor, of course) -- then this one's for you.

Oh, did i forget to mention Leon Tyler as Dick the tiny tap-dancing Western Union delivery boy? I think i did. Well, he's in there too, and so is Arthur Hoyt as the golf-obsessed secretary to the governor.

This film ranks a solid 5 out of 10 for weirdness alone. The only thing that would have made it better, would have been to have had it end with Arthur Hoyt in Imogene Coca's arms on the porch glider, while Dick tap-danced his way into Janie's heart and Bob and Judy got married. As for the Shirley Temple doll, it's worth hundreds now on eBay -- hundreds, i tell you!
