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

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

At about 11 minutes, Dr. Gillespie and Dr. Kildare drink the same glasses of milk twice. Furthermore, the full and empty bottles of milk on the table during the lunch change their positions, and sometimes vanish, between shots. See more »
Medically speaking in Dr. Kildare's Strange Case, Lew Ayres drew to an insight straight. In seeking to help save Sheppard Strudwick's reputation as a neurosurgeon, Ayres performs a completely reckless act without official authorization to prove a point.
Ayres does all this mind you even with the fact that Strudwick who is at the top of his field and pulling down big bucks to add to the big bucks he inherited is making moves on nurse Laraine Day with whom Ayres has a running romance with in the series. Ayres on the other hand is surviving on the meager pay of an intern. But this was the days of the Code and doctors were almost always portrayed as saints.
Strudwick in the film is having a crisis of confidence and rumors that he's losing his touch are spreading. He's lost several patients, not his fault because brain surgery is always risky. Still with Ayres assistance he's operating on John Eldredge who was brought in without identification and disheveled. The operation is a success, but the patient is raving like a lunatic.
Ayres, Lionel Barrymore as Dr. Gillespie and the rest of the Kildare regulars perform magnificently bringing a rather incredulous story to the screen. In real life even if he succeeded in his treatment, young Dr. Kildare would have probably lost his medical license and been hit with a malpractice suit that some dial a shyster lawyer. And I'm sure the rest of Blair General Hospital would not have been left out.
What does Kildare do and how does it come out. For that you see Dr. Kildare's Strangest Case.
