Dr. Gillespie tries to teach Jimmy Kildare a lesson by tossing him into a street clinic. Only Kildare gets called to take a bullet out of a suspected murderer, and when the cops collar him for it, he has to try and prove his patient's innocence, especially for his sister Rosalie's sake. Written by
Dr. Leonard Gillespie:
Did it ever occur to you that a guinea pig doesn't have a wife that sneaks out dancing every night? That a guinea pig's never overdrawn at the bank? That a guinea pig never worries himself sick because he's in love with a blonde chorus girl?

"A hospital's just like a liver -- a little shaking up won't do it any harm."
Dr. Kildare (Lew Ayres) takes a bullet out of a man wanted for murder but doesn't report it to the police, due in small part to Kildare's believing in the man's innocence and in larger part due to the man having a pretty sister (Lana Turner). Now it's up to Dr. Gillespie (Lionel Barrymore) to try and figure a way to save Kildare from getting himself in deep trouble.
The second in MGM's excellent Dr. Kildare series starring Lew Ayres and Lionel Barrymore. Both are great. Lana Turner is very easy on the eyes and fine in an early role. The wonderful regular supporting cast is also on hand, including Nat Pendleton, Marie Blake, Walter Kingsford, and Alma Kruger. All enjoyable. Samuel S. Hinds and Emma Dunn are particularly touching as Kildare's parents. This is the first appearance of Kildare's love interest, Nurse Mary Lamont, played by Laraine Day. This movie also features the second and final appearance of Lynne Carver as Alice Raymond, Kildare's hometown sweetheart who wants to marry him. Unfortunately, that storyline is not resolved in this movie, despite being touched upon in the beginning. The terrific cast of characters is why this series work so well. The highlight of the movie, not surprisingly, is the irascible Dr. Gillespie and his "tell it like it is" approach to dealing with patients, such as a scene early in this one where he gives a middle-aged woman hell for dangerous dieting. It's a solid entry in the series that should please fans and a good jump-on point for newcomers.
