The Dr. Christian show captivated radio audiences from 1937 to 1953. It spun off six independently produced motion pictures, released between 1939 and 1941. The stories of Doctor Christian depicted the life of a physician in River's End, a small rural town, at a time when life was much simpler--when doctors actually made house calls!
