acting good, plot good
4 December 2002 | by (ca) – See all my reviews

I hadn't seen any Dr. Kildare movies till this one.

The young doctor's tragedy may have been a sad cliche, but the doctor's and nurses rallying around his recovery were nice to see. Good acting from Barrymore as usual. Many of the lines about death and duty were very good, ones to remember.
