The Good Doctor (1978)

  
Format:  The Good Doctor DVD 
 
 
Neil Simon reworks Anton Chekhov's early stories of 19th-century Russian bourgeoisie to hilarious effect in one of the most unusual works of his career. Richard Chamberlain plays "The Writer," who ties all of the stories together. Among the other tales are "The Sneeze," in which a clerk fears sneezing on his boss's head; and "The Governess," about a governess and a mistress who settle their accounts. Marsha Mason, Ed Asner, Lee Grant and Bob Dishy also star. 90 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
