The story tells of the victory of understanding humanity, personified by the gum-chewing old fashioned doctor over the coldly inconsiderate, impressively equipped practice of an unexpected competitor. While Rogers is pretty much the whole show, moviegoers will enjoy the acting of Rochelle Hudson, Marian Nixon, Ralph Morgan and Andy Devine. Another picture that makes this show worth attending is "Devil's Playground," starring Richard Dix, Delores Del Rio and Chester Morris, telling the story of a submarine trapped in the sea. t t The Chicago Tribune opens up an old subject by asking why they put holes in Swiss cheese when it is limburger that needs venlila- iing.
