Bing did not sing in the 1957 melodrama "Man on Fire" or the 1966 remake of "Stagecoach" or in his final movie, "Dr. Cook's Garden" (1971).

In the 1971 TV movie "Dr. Cook's Garden," Bing played a small-town physician (shown in photo) who would "prune" the members of his community much like a gardener would cut away diseased or unsightly parts of plants. In the end Dr. Cook got a taste of his own medicine. Unlike the real-life Dr. Jack Kevorkian, Dr. Cook alone made the decision as to who should live and who should die. The "patient" did not choose.
