Movie Info

Remedy for Riches was the fourth in RKO Radio's six-entry "Dr. Christian" series. Jean Hersholt returns as Dr. Christian, the wise and beneficent general practitioner of the town of River's End. The plot is thickened on this occasion by an oil-well scam, perpetrated by city slickers Stewart (Warren Hull) and Vandeveer (Jed Prouty). When the doctor's geologist friend Davis (Dick Baldwin) looks into the duo's get-rich-quick scheme, they contrive to have Davis thrown in jail. Before Christian is able to take matters into his own hands, he is sidetracked by a comic subplot involving a baking contest, presided over by real-life newspaper nutritionist Prudence Penny (as herself). Remedy for Riches is distinguished by more happy endings than a volume of Grimm Fairy Tales.more

Audience Reviews for Remedy for Riches

Enjoyable entry in the Dr. Christian series of the late 1930's and early 1940's. Jean Hersholt is ideally cast. Well acted, good supporting cast, harmless fun. It's not one of the best entries in the series, but it's still good.

James Higgins
