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

Nurse Molly Byrd:
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.

If you like Mash you will like this series. Familiar from a cloudy memory of the TV series I knew there had been a film series and a radio series that included the great Barrymore. Drew's genes are so apparent when one views this film. From the great B to even the most limited characters these films are a joy to watch and with the most memorable lines. And yes I found myself caring about the characters. Charming from a bygone era, and yet timeless. Take a break from today's nutty world and get hooked on these series. And you just might see a character actor just getting started in their youth. Barrymore is in fine form and Kildare's Mom can not be missed.
