Medical Students
19 May 2002 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

This is the film that inspired me to go to medical school...not necessarily to follow a clinical career but certainly got me started. The action focuses on several medical students living in a boarding house run by a spinster, Miss Susie Slagle, the incomparable Lillian Gish. The students include Sonny Tufts, the scion of the Boston Brahmin Tufts (of the same university of the same name) family, in his pre-Hollywood bad boy days, a young Lloyd Bridges, character actor Billy De Wolfe, Pat Phelan and several others of interest only to old movie buffs like myself. It is more a "slice of life" type film and focuses on personal conflicts of the medical students. Tufts is great as the student who gains his confidence during an epidemic and it's a delight to see Ray Collins in a pre-Tragg role and the beautiful Joan Caufield. No video, no DVD listed, so watch for this one on the late show.
