Description by OLDIES.com:
Unofficial town father, Dr. Paul Christian (Jean Hersholt), takes an interest in the boy when he sees an opportunity to reunite Mary with Billy's estranged conductor father, Antoine Pirelle (Walter Woolf King) and impart some sage wisdom on the value of family unity.
John Alton, the brilliant cinematographer who greatly expanded the lexicon of film noir in his later work with director Anthony Mann, brings a complex psychological intensity to the images of Melody For Three. He elevates the greatly beloved Dr. Christian series to a genuine slice of small town Americana that is as potent as a William Saroyan play or a Norman Rockwell painting.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 13 ratings.
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!
