Overview

The third of six feature films based on radio's popular Dr. Christian series, Dr. Christian Meets the Women once more stars Jean Hersholt as the kindly eponymous medico. In this entry, the tiny community of River's End is invaded by Professor Kenneth Parker (Rod La Rocque), a charming charlatan who is promoting a "miracle" diet pill. Despite Dr. Christian's warnings, Parker's wares are ravenously consumed by the female population, whereupon the pill's dangerous side effects begin to manifest themselves. Dr. Christian comes to the rescue with a sensible diet formula which, according to studio publicity, was an amalgam of suggestions from 100 leading American doctors. Its health benefits aside, Dr. Christian Meets the Women was only a fair-to-middling series entry.
