Tonight's Movie: Welcome Stranger (1947)

Holidays and Bing Crosby just seem to go together!

Tonight we watched one of Bing's lesser-known films, WELCOME STRANGER. Bing and Barry Fitzgerald reunited three years after their success in GOING MY WAY to play small-town doctors in Maine. Fitzgerald and the townspeople are initially wary of Bing, the new doctor in town, but it doesn't take long for Bing to work his way into everyone's hearts, including that of a pretty teacher (Joan Caulfield).

A very entertaining evening. The film is not yet on DVD but is available on video.
