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

Quotes

Katie McDermad: I'm a nurse.
Aunt Clara Chadwick: Good heavens, not really?
Katie McDermad: Yes, is that bad?
Aunt Clara Chadwick: Bad? The history of the medical profession is unparalleled in the annals of crime, if you don't mind my saying so.
Katie McDermad: [politely annoyed] I'm afraid I do mind.
Aunt Clara Chadwick: Well, that's absurd. The so-called science of medicine is one part theft, one part hocus pocus and the rest a form of legalized murder.

Shot in the assets
9 October 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

You For Me casts Peter Lawford as a man that people seemingly think he's made of money because he has a lot of it. That's because he was left a whole lot of it by his late father from his fertilizer business. Peter has a lot of that as well. One of his father's charities was the local hospital where Gig Young toils at research when not doing surgery and Jane Greer works as a nurse, a profession she love though the pay stinks.

Lawford has need of the hospital when during a hunting trip he gets shot where his assets are at. A nice load of buckshot has him in surgery where he feels he's not getting his proper share of attention because of the money he gives them.

Of course that sets up the whole romantic triangle of this comedy with Jane Greer getting involved with both heir Lawford and Doctor Young. Guess who she winds up with?

Slight comedy from MGM's B picture unit with a few laughs. In the supporting cast note Kathryn Card as the head nurse who is not one to be trifled with, Howard Wendell who is the officious head of the hospital and butt kisser number one when he's after Lawford's money and Rita Corday who is Lawford's ex-wife and the source of some considerable cash flow problems.
