Storyline

Two pathologists -- a veteran department head (Fredric March) whose perspective has been shaped by years of red tape and day-to-day frustrations, and his new assistant (Ben Gazarra), a young, somewhat aggressive man who is more up-to-date but who lacks his colleague's personal touch -- clash in a small hospital's lab. The gulf between their approaches is dramatically illustrated by two critical cases that both are intimately involved in. Written by alfiehitchie

Quotes

Cathy Hunt: What made you decide to be a ghoul?
Dr. David Coleman: Pathology seemed the best way to contribute to the war. Medicine is a war; a creative, constructive war. And not many of us can be heroes, like Fleming, Pasteur or Salk, but sometimes there's a spectacular advance, as in a war, and doctors rush to the front, leaving lots of pockets of knowledge behind, to be filled in.

High quality I wasn't expecting
5 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was quite a pleasant surprise. I expected something along the lines of The Interns (which was a piece of trash), however for 1961, it was fairly authentic as to hospital and medical aspects. But but best of all, the relationships of the main characters carried the story, which included portrayals of women with intelligence and independence - a real exception for movies of the time. Talented performances by most of the main actors/actresses deserve mention: Fredric March (for the most part, eschewing his predilection for over-acting), Ben Gazarra, Ina Bilan (who's never gotten the credit she really deserves), Aline McMahon, and Dick Clark (I never even knew he was an actor). I could find nothing in the IMDb database about Oscars, but certainly some of these performers deserved at least to be nominated. I'm glad I caught it on TCM.
