Goofs

In the scene with the little girl in a febrile coma and the interns working hard to get it down; Dr. Gillespie is seen looking at an oral thermometer that was supposedly used to check her temp. In this sort of situation that is highly unlikely. Even in this era oral and rectal thermometers were different shapes so no mistakes could be made. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Lee Wong How: [referring to a double amputee patient from Pearl Harbor] Shall I take him back to the ward?
Dr. Leonard B. Gillespie: Ward? No, get him a private room and, oh, see that he has a carton of cigarettes and a radio and the prettiest nurse you can find.

Stumblin' All Around In A Wheelchair
14 January 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

MGM's Dr. Kildare second feature series continues without Dr. Kildare -- Lew Ayres was in the doghouse because of his antiwar stance since starring in 1930s ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT and was serving as a medic.

In the meantime, the series carried on with Lionel Barrymore as the crusty Dr. Gillespie, with newcomers Van Johnson and Keye Luke competing for his favor as his interns. Keye Luke gets the silliest lines, as a partisan of Brooklyn. Van Johnson is interested in anatomy: female anatomy.

Unhappily, much of the feature is taken up with shtick like that, expertly delivered, but absolutely trivial and of little interest. Of more interest might be spotting other budding MGM talent including series regular Nat Pendleton, Donna Reed as a man-hungry temptress for Van Johnson, and Margeret O'Brien at her most waiflike. There is no subtlety in this movie. Director Goldbeck never got out of the Bs and this movie shows why. Unless you want to see the actors far below their best, you may not want to look at this. Most people will want to give this a miss.
