Playboy Alec Considine returns to New North Hospital for another year's internship after suffering a mental breakdown during his first attempt at internship. Among the new interns he guides around the hospital are the explosive Tony Parelli, a former slum boy who is soon at odds with Dr. Riccio, head of the hospital; and Phil Osterman, who smuggles his bride into the intern's quarters to live. Parelli falls in love with Nancy Terman, a social worker who goes to pieces when she is raped by delinquents whom Parelli knew from the slums. Newly married resident Dr. Lew Worship learns that he is sterile, and the news nearly wrecks his marriage, but he and his wife, Gloria, solve their problem by deciding to adopt children. Nancy's assailants are brought into the hospital following a gang fight, and they confront Parelli.

For any fan of 60's culture this is a bonanza
22 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Soapy goings-on at an inner city hospital is nothing extraordinary but for any fan of 60's TV or cinema this is a bonanza. Where else will you find I Dream of Jeannie's Barbara Eden, Maryann from Gilligan's Island, Kojak, The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. and Barney from Mission Impossible all gathered together in one film.

The film's plot has by now been adapted hundreds of times in both film and television but the cast performs their roles effectively. Michael Callan is goofy and charming providing a much needed lightness against the heavier plot threads.

This served as the big screen bow of George Segal who is given the flashiest role of the hot headed new doctor from the neighborhood, the flaw in that scenario is that he talks with a distinct New Yorker accent and no one else does, aside from that he's does fine in the part.

The acting standout is Inger Stevens. At the time this was made she, along with Callan, was the biggest name in the cast and as social worker Nancy is the person with the most serious story line which she handles with aplomb. As always in that tragic beauty's films she is incredibly lovely.

Not great art but if you like medical dramas, soap operas or watching a collection of stars on their way up this is an enjoyable two hours.
