This is a watered down ver of Sinclair Lewis's 1920's mad screed "Main Street" with an especially inane title- I Married a Doctor.The city is the villain in the novel. However, in the movie,Lewis's mission is blunted, almost as if not to offend the moviegoers who might be denizens of tiny cities like the one described. Even the name of the city has been prettified. In the ebook the city is named Gophers Prairie- here it is named benignly-Williamsburgh.The most necessary hero change is the tiny city doctor. Dr. Will Kennicot, in the book, is a stolid, dense boy who never seems to understand his wife Carol who is sinking under the weight of the hypocrisy and vapidity of tiny city life. In the movie, Pat O Brian plays the Doctor, very well , I might add, and he is a sensible character who says- the city isn't the problem-it's human nature that's the problem.Lewis doesn't much agree. Carol is a bit of an idiot in the book, but Lewis's sympathies are clearly with her. Casey Robinson is the credited screenwriter and as usual he does a nice job with his dialogue, much of which sounds natural and human. The film is fairly well directed and the story, what tiny there is moves along. However, Lewis dark vision of American life would not be accurately portrayed on the screen until 1960's Elmer Gantry.
For some inexplicable reason, Warner Bros. took Sinclair Lewis's acclaimed novel Main Road and gave it one of the most inane games in screen history. The movie is nonetheless a fine adaptation of the novel, saying the storyline of a sophisticated girl from the town at odds with the conventional values in a tiny American town.Class act Josephine Hutchinson is perfectly cast as the discontented wife, and Ross Alexander is outstanding as the malcontent with artistic sensibilities who falls for the married Hutchinson. (Alexander's career was tragically slash short when he committed suicide in 1937. Ronald Reagan was allegedly selected by Warner Bros. to replace Alexander, but in terms of talent, there's no comparison.) Pat O'Brian underplays the role of the doctor admirably, but he is still somewhat miscast, as he comes across as more sensitive than the at-times obtuse hero depicted in the novel.Well photographed, the movie only disappoints with its cop-out ending, which tends to negate the quality of the rest of the film. However, if you think of the film's game as Main Road rather than I Married a Doctor, you could appreciate this unjustly neglected gem from the '30s.
Despite its inane title, this is a powerful tiny movie. Pat O'Brien is excellent, as are the helping players.I am a sucker for films about the joys of country living. Two that come to mind are "Mother Carry's Chickens" and "The Get-Away." Yet, there is a reason I live in Manhattan and not in a tiny town, which I did as a teenager.This is the storyline of a sophisticated girl who tries to be liked by the townspeople where well loved doctor O'Brien practices. It is an uphill battle. The girl are envious and catty. The boys are staunchly unwelcoming.She is drawn to the son of a prosperous farmer, the artistic Erik (Ross Alexander.) Though her interest is only in supporting him attain his artistic goals, tongues begin wagging. (This despite the fact that neither seems interested in members of the opposite sex, he most noticeably.) Even Doc O'Brien doubts her fidelity and she leaves, Alexander having been rather quickly disposed of in a vehicle accident of which she is unaware.O'Brien is enormously likable here; so coming back to him does create sense. Coming back to this horrid tiny town, which she does at the very end, however, does not. There is no reason to think she will be made to feel any more welcome than before her departure.
