Storyline

Katie McDermad, who comes from a working class household, is a dedicated surgical nurse, who loves her profession but not the low pay. Her emotions often get the better of her. Jeff Chadwick is a surgeon and researcher who works in the same hospital. The nurses in general consider him the greatest catch of the doctors, that is if he had any interest in a social life, as he spends all his time and money dedicated to his work. Katie's temper makes an inopportune appearance in the operating room when she is asked to work late after an already long shift to assist in the non-medical emergency surgery of Tony Brown, who got shot accidentally in the derrière while on a hunting trip. The emergency part of the surgery is that wealthy Tony is the major benefactor to the hospital to the tune of $100,000 per year, he who demanded immediate and quick attention to his injury. Katie's behavior in the operating room costs her her job on Tony's behest, and costs the hospital Tony's annual $100,000 ... Written by Huggo

Greer shines in a mediocre film
19 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

The first fifteen minutes are a lark. Jane Greer displays her great comedic timing which never was used to its best potential (for Greer at her comedic best, catch "The Big Steal").

After the first fifteen minutes, the film drags. Greer's character loses all of her comedic appeal, becoming just another girl looking for love, while Peter Lawford, Gig Young, and the rest of the cast try a bit too hard to sound funny, failing miserably and chewing up scenery in return.

Fortuneately, the charm of Jane Greer made this 70 minutes too long film worth sitting the whole way through. But she, and Gig Young have done far better work then this programmer.
