Van Johnson moves up to top billing in the remnants of the Dr. Kildare series, but don't let that fool you: Lionel Barrymore continues to own every scene he's in and most of those he's not in. This is the next to last in the series, although how they sold it is up in the air: there's nothing to indicate it in the title, and a potential competing doctor is knocked off in the opening dialogue, although Keye Luke shows up as does series regular Alma Kruger as Nurse Molly Bird.
Meanwhile, the fun in this series is looking at the talent on display before it became well known. Van Johnson is pursued by society girl Marilyn Maxwell, made up like Ava Gardner, and cures chanteuse Gloria de Haven by a quick psychoanalytic session before she became a bad girl in the movies. So much for miracle cures. Keenan Wynn shows up as a nightclub mc and that about covers the fun in this movie.
