Description by OLDIES.com:

A physician has a bumpy time acquiring the money for delivering his services in a lumber town until he delivers the Dionne quintuplets.

Product Description:

The well-publicized (and overexploited) birth of Canada's Dionne Quintuplets in 1934 formed the basis of THE COUNTRY DOCTOR. Jean Hersholt starred as Dr. Allan Dafoe, the real-life medico who delivered the famous quints (who appear in person towards the end of the film). The film recounts Dafoe's difficulties in ministering to the somewhat backward residents of his tiny Canadian community, and his battle with a local bigwig who wants to bring in a "modern" doctor. The Dionne births transform Dafoe into a local hero, leading to his winning of the Order of the British Empire. In real life, Dr. Dafoe effectively wrested custody of the Dionne quints away from the parents, then cashed in on the subsequent merchandising; later on, public opinion would turn against Dafoe, defiling him as an opportunistic cad.
