The hospital depicted in the film is actually a set on the old MGM lot. Production Designer Gene Callahan designed it in a way that was accessible for the characters to see one another and actually feel comfortable being there. For example, he would have glass windows in the patients rooms so the doctors and nurses in the film could actually see their patients, in this case mainly Richard Dreyfuss. See more »
This thought provoking and philosophically painful. Most people have an opinion on euthanasia and how they would react should they end up helplessly crippled and so does Ken Harrison in this movie. But do we really mean what we say? What is really special about this movie is that it does not take a stand at the end. It lets us wonder. Does he actually change his mind as the good doctor suggests he might?
I for one, dread a decision like this one.
