MGM Stars Chamberlain and Mimieux
25 March 2013 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Richard Chamberlain was an MGM star of MGM's Dr. Kildare TV series. Every spring when the TV hit went on hiatus MGM starred its big star in a theatrical movie. A Thunder of Drums with George Hamilton and Luana Patten ( both MGM stars) and then onto Twilight of Honor with the estimable Claude Rains, and finally Joy In The Morning with its radiant and lovely star Yvette Mimieux in this hit movie.

Chamberlain and Mimieux had starred in a 2 part Dr.Kildare called Tyger Tyger and was so well received the studio assigned them both to Joy In The Morning to cash in on the popularity. Allegedly Chamberlain and Mimieux were not as close off the set as they appeared in this movie. Chamberlain during the run of Kildate the legend goes got more fan mail per week than Clark Gable then the King Of The Movies.

Joy In The Morning filmed mostly on the now gone MGM backlot is a good movie with Chamberlain exuding the acting skills he would be later in his career be recognized.
