Arrowsmith (1931)

Based on the Sinclair Lewis novel of the same name, the film follows Dr. Martin Arrowsmith's dreams of influencing mankind through his scientific research. Offered a lab job right out of school, he turns it down to move to his wife's rural hometown and become a general practitioner. It is here that he makes a breakthrough that receives national attention.

This is a largely unspectacular show. But it was directed by four-time Oscar winning director John Ford and stars Ronald Colman who was a big star at the time.

101 to go...
