Based on several films released between 1939 and 1941 starring Jean Hersholt as Dr. Paul Christian, this series picks up with his retirement and as he turns his practice over to his nephew, Dr. Mark Christian.
Nobody's here, but I remember Shannon. It was one of those series that were mostly syndicated rather than network. It's not another Shannon which was in the 80's. I remember this with George Nader who was sort of another hunk guy like Rock Hudson but never made it to the big show. It didn't help that he took being out in order to cover Rock Hudson. Apparently Hudson left him money since George took the fall.
Anyways, I just liked his syndie show where he was an insurance guy who looked for people who lied about their insurance claims. He had a neat film camera in his car, between the front seats and he could flip a switch and the camera would rise up and film the bad insurance claims.
I suppose this is more about me as it was one of those TV shows in early 1960's that were syndies that I always liked because they didn't have as much money so they had to work out better ideas. Wish I could see more of those syndies.
Well, George, never knew you, but I remembered you with all the other syndie shows like Sea Hunt and many others.
IMDb should find more about this series.
