Description by OLDIES.com:

The "Dr. Christian" radio show, co-created by star Jean Hersholt, captivated audiences from 1937 to 1953 and spurred six independently produced motion pictures. In the third installment of these cinematic time capsules, Dr. Christian Meets The Women, the hometown physician confronts the unique and timeless American obsession with dieting.

Disreputable but smooth-talking Professor Kenneth Parker steamrolls into the town of River's End with a weight loss program that promises dangerously unrealistic results in a dramatically short period of time. Steadfast Dr. Christian warns the townswomen, but they regard his advice as professional jealousy from a stodgy old general practitioner and hypnotically embrace Professor Parker's poisonous plan. Soon the women find themselves sick and in failing health due to their new diet regimen. The men folk of River's End rally against Parker's design for living and it's up to the noble Dr. Christian to come to the rescue with a real plan for a balanced diet.

Product Description:

A conman arrives in town trying to sell his miracle methods of weight loss to the ladies. It's left to the good Dr. Christian to expose this fake and save a fragile young girl's life.

Rating 4.5 Great old film! Movie Lover: from NY -- July, 3, 2007

What fun I have had watching the Dr. Christian series. There are 6 in the series and Oldies.com has them all! I so enjoyed Jean Hersholt's performance that I started to believe he really was a doctor. The preservation of these films are not great, but certainly very watchable. Try them, I think you will enjoy them!
