A dedicated young doctor places his patients above everyone else in his life. Unfortunately, his social register fianceé can't accept the fact that he considers an appointment in the operating room more important that attending a cocktail party. He soon drifts into an affair with a pretty nurse who shares his passion for healing. Written by

MGM melodrama takes a look at the personal and professional crisis of Dr. George Ferguson (Clark Gable). He's under pressure from his boss to work as hard as he can to become a better doctor but this doesn't sit well with his girlfriend (Myrna Loy) who wants more time with him. The screenplay here is pretty thin so the movie comes off rather bland even for 1934 standards. We've seen this type of drama countless times before and this movie really doesn't offer anything new. The performances are clearly the best thing with Gable giving a very intense performance. Loy is good in her role but it's your typical bitchy girlfriend part. Jean Hersholt, Otto Kruger, Wallace Ford and Griffith regular Henry B. Walthall co-star.
