Outstanding performance by Rains
10 July 2009 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This episode of DR. KILDARE features an outstanding performance by Claude Rains - one of his last. Rains would reunite with Richard Chamberlin in the feature film TWILIGHT OF HONOR. Here he is a grandfather, grieving over the loss of his granddaughter and furious over the seemingly callous way that hospital staffers laugh to each other while going about their duties. What makes this episode so special is the depth in which the characters are explored and the literary nature of many of the speeches. Very unlike today's television drama where characters say as little as possible. My one reservation with the episode is the denouement. SPOILER ALERT: I would much rather the explosive Rains creates would not have exploded. It was poorly executed and I think failure would have been very acceptable. Also, Raymond Massey's concluding line of dialogue is far too flimsy and glib and the episode wraps way too abruptly given the horrible climax. Still, what precedes the climax is the real meat of the film and it's excellent. I bought a 16mm print on the strength of Rains' appearance. Imagine my delight when I discovered William Demarest was another guest star, as well as Burt Mustin. All in all, a highly recommended episode.
