Storyline

Dr. Eli Watt, a widower, comes to a small town, considering himself a failure in his attempt to have a meaningful career in New York. He raises his son Jimmy as well as Letty, a baby whose mother has died in childbirth and whose father blames Watt and abandons the child. Watt dreams of returning to do research studies, but something always gets in the way: an epidemic, his children's needs, or the needs of his generally ungrateful patients. Only with the passing years does he come to find that his future isn't over and his past isn't quite the failure he believed. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

A beautiful mind
11 March 2012 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

A journey ,which may seem,to some,very modest,but all in all,as the prestigious thespian says during the meal:'I'm the guest of honor,but I should not;the true guest of honor is Dr Watt.

A country doctor ,who has devoted his time to relieve the others' sufferings ,sometimes without asking for something in return ,sometimes paid in potatoes ,abandoning any claim to a great career;he could have carried on his studies at the university but he tells his son (Joel McCrea,future western star)that "your success will be ours" ;only he was able to cure Letty ,because,unlike all the greatest leadings lights in the medical world,he healed the soul.Moving performance by Lionel Barrymore.
