ALPHA VIDEO offers bargain priced, often hard-to-find vintage movies that are ideal for those willing to skip DVD extras. Their transfers show no evidence of restoration, so quality varies from one title to the next, with "fair to good" being the average.

Dr. Christian of River's End was based on the Canadian obstetrician who delivered the Dionne Quints. The long-running radio series (1937-54) hit the big screen with a bit of a whimper; this first programmer is rather maudlin. The other five chapters are considerably better.

In '56, the good doctor became a TV star for a 39 episode season. As scripted by Gene Roddenberry, in the very first show our hero turned over his practice to a nephew, played by Macdonald Carey. (Jean H. died shortly after filming the series premiere.)

Dr. Paul Christian sacrifices his big city career to relocate to a small town, where he's appointed health department head. The doctor soon runs afoul of Mayor Hewitt when he asks why money allocated for a new hospital is being used for road construction. Hewitt fires him but regrets doing so when his child is badly hurt in a car wreck. Her injuries are so severe, the girl can't be transported to a city hospital. Christian is forced to operate on her cerebral hemorrhage in a primitive infirmary, and even the help of a Chicago surgeon may not be enough to save Hewitt's child.

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 imdb viewer poll rating.

(5.7) Meet Dr. Christian (1939) - Jean Hersholt/Dorothy Lovett/Robert Baldwin/Enid Bennett/Paul Harvey/Maude Eburne/Sarah Edwards (uncredited: Heinie Conklin)
