The usual hospital shenanigans and a weepy love story too...
9 March 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Sorry, but these Dr. Kildare pictures have about as much resemblance to real life as any childhood fantasy. Gruff DR. GILLESPIE is really given too much footage in this outing and frankly, LIONEL BARRYMORE's grumblings get a bit tiresome after the first half-hour. He's the man who makes Ayres realize that despite his grief, he's still first and foremost a doctor.

LEW AYRES and LARAINE DAY do their usual competent jobs as the romantic leads in the series, with Ayres unable to find the time to attend to all the pressing details of an upcoming marriage. Laraine Day was so sick of her Kildare assignments at MGM, that the writers were assigned to write her out of the series so she could go on with her career in more than this one-dimensional role.

The nice supporting cast always helped make the series at least minimally entertaining. RED SKELTON's participation, however, seems a bit out of place in an extended gag scene with him guarding a whole bunch of suitcases while a possible thief watches silently nearby.

ALMA KRUGER, MARIE BLAKE, SAMUEL S. HINDS, MILES MANDER, FRANK ORTH and others give good support, while NILS ASTHER has the most interesting supporting role as a musical conductor who needs medical attention.

Summing up: A trifle of a B-film, the kind that played the lower half of a double bill in the '40s.
