Storyline

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 garykmcd

Trivia

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 »

Another fine entry into the Dr. Kildare series...
15 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
