Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hi, Doc! was the flippant English-language title bestowed upon the French seriocomedy Bonjour Toubib. That splendid comic actor Noel-Noel stars as a seemingly bumptious physician, regarded as an object of ridicule by his superiors, and not a few of his patients. In true Capraesque fashion, it turns out that the doctor has a lot more on the ball than his so-called brilliant colleagues. A subplot concerns the leading character's son, who has the qualifications but none of the desire to follow in his father's footsteps. Bonjour Toubib was a curiously lightweight choice for the Cannes Film Festival of 1957.
