Doctor Bull is a 1933 American comedy film directed by John Ford, based on the James Gould Cozzens novel The Last Adam. Will Rogers portrays a small town doctor who must deal with a typhoid outbreak in the community.

The film was well praised by the New York Times, which noted that the story is similar to Lionel Barrymore's film One Man's Journey when it premiered at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City.[1] Andy Devine met his future wife during the making of this picture.
