Dr. Jimmy Kildare is back at work at Blair General hospital, though several people admit that he is not himself since suffering his loss. He's taken a liking to a young intern, Don Winthrop, and tries to help him out when he transports an accident victim, socialite Cynthia "Cookie" Charles, to Blair General from outside the hospital's agreed territory. When the other hospital complains, Winthrop is fired. Soon after, his girlfriend, Nurse Anabelle Kirke, is also let go when she too misapplies hospital policy. Kildare pleads their case with the hospital Board but with little luck. He then gets the well-connected Cookie, who has a thing for him, to help to sort it out Written by
Selmer Jackson is in studio records playing "Mr. Baxter", but he was replaced by Charles Trowbridge. Also in studio records as "Mason" was Vinton Hayworth, but he was not seen in the print. The Hollywood Reporter listed Samuel S. Hinds and Emma Dunn in their usual roles as Dr. Kildare's parents, but they were not in the film either. These omissions may have resulted from final cuts, since the preview time listed in Daily Variety was 100 minutes. See more »
Dr. Leonard Gillespie:
When I was a young doctor the gals used to go for me in a big way.
Nurse Molly Byrd:
Sure but during the Civil War, most of the attractive men were at the front so the girls didn't have much choice.

...for her tiresome portrayal of débutante Cynthia 'Cookie' Charles, a patient who has a beer sign fall on her and a piece of the sign embedded in her heart. Once Cookie begins recovering she has the hots for the recent victim of tragedy, Dr. James Kildare, the surgeon who saved her life. However, her moves are so obvious she might as well be sending up flares. It's too bad she didn't buy some popcorn and see the earlier Kildare movies or she would know that slow, steady, and sweet are how you win the heart of James Kildare, not with overt come-ons.
The rest of the film is great. The series has mercifully removed Red Skelton from the role of orderly - Red's a great comic, but this just was not his style. Unfortunately, Nat Pendleton is still absent in the same role. On the light side there's a DT patient that runs through the hospital looking for his pink elephants, some great cigarette rolling by head nurse Molly Byrd, and a comic bit involving Doctor Carew who is mistaken for - both a maniac and a ghost??? The serious side involves an agreement between Blair and another hospital involving a dividing line between their territories as to where emergency cases go. A young couple in love - an intern and a nurse- have their jobs become casualties of the technicalities of this agreement. Dr. Kildare decides to help them out, first because their cause is just, and second because the two of them probably remind him of himself and Mary Lamont in happier times.
Highly recommended as a good entry in the series and unfortunately, the last with Lew Ayres as the suave Dr. K.
