Description by OLDIES.com:

Pretty Mamie and her brother Buddy are beaten and abused daily by their heartless father, shopkeeper Ben Goltz. A ray of hope shines into their bleak lives when Dr. John Harvey's Medicine Show rolls into town promising "the greatest aggregation of merry-making mirth provokers" ever. Mamie steals away to the show at night and quickly succumbs to the smooth-talking charms of Dr. Harvey. When Papa Goltz learns of Mamie's transgression, he beats the poor girl and arranges her immediate marriage to Schultz, a brute twice her age. Dr. Harvey will need to act fast if he is save the girl he loves.

Jack Benny was a vaudeville veteran cast as the handsome leading man in The Medicine Man. A legendary icon of American entertainment, he left an indelible mark in radio with "The Jack Benny Show" (1932-48), and television with "The Jack Benny Show" (1950-1965), two episodes of which are included here as bonus material.

Product Description:

In this early Benny movie, he's a "Medicine Man" who comes into a small town with enormous fanfare, peddling his all-purpose "health tonic," in his wake, a long trail of empty wallets and broken hearts lay strewn.
