The thought of filming in an actual hospital was considered. However, MGM thought it make the film look cheesy since a lot of television shows were being filmed in actual hospitals at the time, so they decided to spend extra money to create their own hospital that would be more of a controlled and easier set to shoot in.

May doctors let a patient die? Is it right to keep a person who wants to die alive?
These are two questions which this movie handles, and you have the possibility to agree or not. But wether you like the idea of letting a patient die or not, the movie really makes you think about all the angles in this case.
I would rate it 8/10.
