lovely episode
12 June 2010 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent, lovely episode and a good example of why the show ran so long and was so good. It combined the best of anthology with the best of medical series, well written and performed in an underplayed way.This episode is about whether Dr. Kildare will go into research medicine after he is unable to save his friend and what the diagnosis is of the young Margaret, aka Mardy. It also gives a wonderful guest role to actress Barbara Bel Geddes, best known to us as the young daughter in I Remember Mama in her youth and Miss Ellie on Dallas in her later years. She is a research physician, at first seen as cold, later taking an interest in the girl who would have been the same as as her own daughter if her daughter had lived. This is played simply, discreetly, and touchingly. The show explores the issues of accurate diagnosis, doctors who do research as opposed to clinical work with patients, boundaries with patients, and the protégé relationship between Dr. Kildare and Dr. Gillespie, played wisely and warmly by Raymond Massey. The weekly TV series at the time gave a lot of great roles to guest stars and this is a prime example in the role and the customarily great performance by Bel Geddes.
