Nah, I felt more "unwelcome" watching this, than welcome. Anyway, if you want to see Bing Crosby and Barry Fitzgerald in more appealing roles, watch "Going My Way" instead. In that movie, the guys play priests. Here, they are doctors.
The trouble was Fitzgerald was so bad, or at least so "crabby," he was downright annoying to watch in here. His Irish brogue with the crabby personality made him all the more irritating. Usually I love the Irish characters and accent, but not the idiot character ("Dr. Joseph McRory") in this movie.
In both films, you get the same thing: the younger man is always the "good guy" and the older, more traditional man is always the "bad guy." Hollywood has always sided with rebels, those who challenge either authority or the old ways.
