Young Dr. Kildare is still being trained at General Hospital by old, crusty Dr. Gillespie. This time, he tries to rehabilitate Gregory Lane, a brain surgeon depressed over losing too many patients (and incidentally Kildare's romantic rival for nurse Mary Lamont). Lane's losing streak takes a new turn when one of his patients survives...but seems to be insane. Or is the man's strange obsession with Friday the clue to a mystery? To find out, Kildare must take a terrible risk. Written by

Nurses are just like husbands. You can abuse them, insult them, work 'em to death, jump all over 'em. They'll take it. But give 'em a bad cup of coffee and you got a revolution on your hands.

I am new to this series. I remember seeing these on Saturday afternoon TV when I was a kid. Unlike most series they used a stellar cast. The problem is I felt that everyone was so darned stiff. It's as if they were walking through a part. Lionel Barrymore is crotchety (he defined the word) but the rest engage in a plot that makes me ask, "Who cares?" There is a bit of romance, medical drama, criminal action, betrayal, self doubt. Lots of soap opera stuff. There's also that control that Dr. Gillespie holds over Kildare. Of course, the old goat has the tender heart. I still hate him from "It's a Wonderful Life." In fairness, perhaps these types of movies grown on one. I should probably give them another chance. Still I found the acting predictable and the plot not very interesting.
