Dr. Christian Meets the Women is a 1940 American film directed by William C. McGann and written by Lee Loeb and Ernest Pagano. The film stars Jean Hersholt as Dr. Christian, with Dorothy Lovett, Edgar Kennedy, Robert Baldwin, Elizabeth Patterson, Tom Neal, Gene Reynolds, and Maude Eburne in supporting roles. Dr. Christian is a small-town general practitioner who is loved and respected by his community. He has a caring and compassionate personality, and he always puts his patients first. In this story, Dr. Christian is faced with a series of difficult cases involving women, and he must use all his skills and expertise to help them.

The movie begins with Dr. Christian attending a medical conference in California. While there, he meets a young woman named Judy Price (Dorothy Lovett), who is suffering from anemia. Impressed by her spirit and determination, Dr. Christian offers her a job as his assistant in his small-town clinic. Judy is thrilled to accept and follows him back to the town of River's End.

Once there, Dr. Christian takes Judy under his wing, introducing her to his patients and teaching her about medicine. Together, they encounter a series of women with different medical issues.

One of the women they meet is Mary Hastings (Elizabeth Patterson), an elderly woman whose health is failing. Mary is devastated by the thought of leaving her beloved garden behind and is reluctant to seek medical help. Dr. Christian and Judy work together to convince her to seek treatment, and they manage to improve her condition, much to her delight.

Another patient they encounter is Connie Meadows (Maude Eburne), a woman whose chronic cough has left her unable to sleep. Dr. Christian suspects that Connie's husband, who is a heavy smoker, is responsible for her condition. He urges Connie to leave her husband, and she ultimately takes his advice, which leads to an improvement in her health.

Dr. Christian also helps a young couple, Martha and Bill Farnsworth (Doris Dawson and Tom Neal), who are trying to have a baby. Dr. Christian suspects that Bill's drinking may be negatively affecting his fertility, and he helps the couple overcome their issues and become parents.

Through these cases and more, the film explores the challenges faced by women in small-town America during the early 20th century.
