When Lew Ayres announced he was a conscientious objector to the war shortly after the film was released, hundreds of bookings were canceled because of protests. Loew's ordered that all cancellation requests be granted. When Ayres changed his status (in April 1942) to "non-combatant", many in the film industry stated that a boycott of his films would be intolerant and inconsistent with "Americanism". See more »
An ambulance picks up a debutante lying on the sidewalk in front of a nightclub with a shard of glass in her heart. Unfortunately... the territory the nightclub is in is outside the jurisdiction of Blair General Hospital, and lawsuits soon arrive...
As with the other films in the Kildare series, this excellent entry has several sub-plots that initially seem unconnected, but still seem to play off each other through out the course of the film.
Watch early in the film for the cigarette rolling contest between Dr. gillespie (Lionel Barrymore), and his always adversarial.. but loving watchdog... head nurse.
Overall, this, as with all films in in the series, are well done, and make enjoyable viewing for all.
