Editorial Reviews

Academy Award winners Bing Crosby and Barry Fitzgerald re-team in Welcome Stranger - their follow-up film to Best Picture winner Going My Way. Dr. McRory (Fitzgerald) is a crotchety old physician who decides to take his first vacation in years. He requests a substitute doctor and gets Jim Pearson (Crosby), a brash young man who immediately rubs him the wrong way. So Dr. McRory decides to forget the vacation and stay home to protect his practice. This puts the two men at each other's throats - and the fun begins! Filled with classic Bing Crosby songs, this heartwarming comedy gem is just what the doctor ordered.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun! February 5, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
If your a fan of Bing, or just looking for a feel good movie, look no further. This reteaming of the successful pairing of Bing Crosby and Barry Fitzgerald is a keeper.Barry stars as a retiring small town doctor who hires Bing as his replacement without meeting him first. Needless to say, the two get off on the wrong foot,and what ensues is very funny and often touching. Highly reccommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Bing and Barry Make it Fun-Again December 4, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
This is a charming team- up of Bing Crosby and Barry Fitzgerald who made "Going My Way" such a hit. Bing is a sub-in doctor taking Barry's place in a small town while Barry goes on vacation. The way these two meet on the train is funny and filled with a sense of what can really happen when people start off on the wrong foot. Bing sings, of course, and eventually gets in a zinger about Bob Hope, which you have to pay attention for or you'll miss it. (This was made around the time they were making their "Road" pictures. Throughout Bing is smooth and cool, and handles it all. Its fun, light and makes you think about how it must have been back then. No great plot to look for here, but find instead those nuggets of screen "Crosbyana" that made him such a much loved star then and still so today.

5.0 out of 5 stars A warm-hearted classic August 29, 2005
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
anyone who gives this movie less than 5 stars has to be checked for a pulse!

This is a well made, warm hearted classic. A "feel good" movie of triumph...once upon a time, when movies made you feel good about life...

WHEN is this going to be put on DVD?!? When you see the VHS price so high, you realize how rare and great this film is!

4.0 out of 5 stars Special Features: None. As in no subtitles either. August 12, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First off, I love this movie. And I had no issues with this DVDs video quality. However, as one who suffers from a degree of hearing loss, I was sadly disappointed to discover that there are no subtitles available; but I suppose that's what 'No Special Features' means. Just a heads up, and lesson learned.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful film October 17, 2012
Format:DVD
This film is a great follow up to the Oscar winning 'Going My Way' because of that film this one is vastly underrated, had it not come after 'Going My Way' 'Welcome Stranger' would be far more popular and well known today, I can highly recommend it, Bing Crosby is well....Bing Crosby, Barry Fitzgerald puts in one of his best performances as a cranky old country doctor looking for a temporary replacement while he takes his first holiday in years, when his replacement turns out to be Bing he is less than impressed by this young upstart having hopped that the replacement agency he used would have sent him a more mature man. Eventually everything turns out right as it always does in old Hollywood, but there is charm a plenty along the way. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
