Dr. Gillespie's health is failing, and the hospital is urging him to get a new assistant that he doesn't want. So, he poses a stumper in class to discourage all the bright young students; unfortunately, he gets three smart-alecky youngsters who all know the answer: Randall Adams (clean-cut American type), Lee Wong How (from Brooklyn), and Dennis LIndsey (Aussie). In typical Gillespie fashion, he sets about showing them there's more to doctoring than book-learning, and assigns each intern to an impossible case of diagnosis, saying that whoever gets it right will become his new assistant.

Whenever a Dr. Gillespie film comes on TV, I try to see it. This is because the series is awfully good--and always entertaining. However, I must admit that this one was a bit of a disappointment. Not bad...just not as good as I'd assumed it would be.
Dr. Gillespie, as usual, is overworking and the nurses and hospital administrator are pushing him to get an assistant. So, Gillespie agrees and has three of his most promising students take on cases to see which one does best--as the best man will earn the position. Two of the cases are a bit mundane but one involves a woman who suddenly shows symptoms of amnesia--which is a real stumper.
So why is this a bit disappointing? Well, the amnesia case turns out to be remarkably silly. Additionally, there is a small bit that seems to be PRO-wife beating! You really have to see this to believe it! Not a terrible film but a disappointing one.
By the way, the city of Woolloomooloo is a real place to the South of Sydney. It's a relatively large city and I was just there a few weeks ago.
