The Doctor in Spite of Himself (Italian: Medico per forza) is a 1931 Italian comedy film directed by Carlo Campogalliani. It is a free adaptation of Molière's play Le Médecin malgré lui. It was made at the Cines Studios in Rome.
After starring the comedy, for many times in the theaters, Ettore Petrolini reinvents Sganarelle, in a way close to the character Bertoldo of Giulio Cesare Croce. Referring to Petrolini, the film critic Filippo Sacchi had written "You have to accept it as it is, with his temperament and his admirable qualities ... with the grotesque and the joke that elude even without logic in the comic genre"
