Perhaps this film inspired Kervorkian?
22 September 2000 | by (The Beach) – See all my reviews

One of the amazing films of the ABC Tuesday Night at the Movies, Bing Crosby starts out as a Kervorkian style doctor but crosses the line as he begins to make judgments on who in his small town must live or die based on their conduct. Chilling and foretelling.
