Dr. Gillespie's cancer has gotten worse, and to force him to take a rest instead of pursuing a sulfa-drug/pneumonia study, Kildare refuses to assist Gillespie, and instead accepts a case of hysterical blindness. She's also the daughter of a millionaire who could help the hospital. Written by
In real life if Donald Trump had a daughter like Helen Gilbert with all kinds of ailments we would be catering to her I have no doubt the way Walter Kingsford as head of Blair General Hospital is catering to Gilbert's father Lionel Atwill. Of course Kingsford turns the problem over to Lionel Barrymore who in turn gets Lew Ayres to do the actual work.
Which consists of being introduced as an eligible young man by Atwill to his daughter and Ayres to start dating her up to observe her behavior from a medical perspective. You know that's going to cause a problem for Ayres because his relationship with nurse Laraine Day who was introduced to the Blair General Hospital staff and the Dr. Kildare series in the previous film.
Best thing about a somewhat silly episode is the performance of Grant Mitchell as a quack doctor who Gilbert gets involved with. The Dr. Feelgood of his time.
