Movie Info

In this film, Will Rogers stars as Dr. Bull, a small-town physician with precious little book learning. This doesn't stop him from ministering to the citizens, often substituting advice and witticisms for pills and sutures. However, there are those who resist Dr. Bull's everyday doses of common sense and humanity.

Audience Reviews for Doctor Bull

Will Rogers at his best, charming, and able to get laughs from thrownaway lines and facial expressions. The DVD set couples this with JUDGE PRIEST, and the two are a great double feature.
