Crusty Dr. McRory of Fallbridge, Maine hires a replacement for his vacation sight unseen. Alas, he and young singing doctor Jim Pearson don't hit it off; but Pearson is delighted to stay, once he meets teacher Trudy Mason. The locals, taking their cue from McRory, cold-shoulder Pearson, especially Trudy's stuffy fiancée. But then, guess who needs an emergency appendectomy? Written by

A complete mystery as to why this film is not shown on TV more often.
I first saw this film on TV about 25 years ago and the magic and chemistry of Bing and Barry was obvious. Years later, I finally acquired this film in VHS format(I had recorded it previously in Beta format). It has everything to offer to movie buffs and I hope that the networks start to show it as a Christmas movie. It took the public about 30 years to catch on to "It's A Wonderful Life". This movie, like another of Bing's gems"Holiday Inn(1942)" could fit right in at any time of the year;and with the beautiful Joan Caulfield-anytime. I think that to date, I've watched it about 30 times. My favorite line is Bing's telling taxi driver Percy Kilbride(who refuses Bing's offer of a tip) "You'ld be a big hit in New York".
