Between Two Women is exactly where Dr. Van Johnson finds himself. Lionel Barrymore gives him some nightclub tickets and tells him to spend the night off. But Johnson who is a doctor 24/7 spots something wrong with singer Gloria DeHaven and his rich society girlfriend Marilyn Maxwell gets in my opinion rather pouty over it. She can't quite convince herself that to Johnson she's an unusual and intriguing case. Especially after she collapses in her dressing room. I thought Maxwell's attitude was really unreasonable and the story really isn't convincing. At least that part of it.
As it turns out DeHaven's problems are all in her mind. But I'll let you see the film to find out what they are.
What's very real is the popular Blair General Hospital switchboard operator Marie Blake collapsing and getting checked in. Everyone has a deep and abiding concern for her from hospital head Walter Kingsford to head nurse Alma Kruger on down. Blake who was Jeanette MacDonald's real life sister has some very touching scenes with Johnson. This one hits close to home to the Blair General Hospital family.
The story of Blake is far better written and told than the one with DeHaven making Between Two Women a rather unbalanced film. Still those who like those Blair General Hospital films should be pleased.
