Strong First Episode
8 August 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Dr. Styner battles to save a new-born's life following the leukemia induced death of the young mother.

There's lots of nail-biting drama in the delivery room as various measures are exerted to get the new-born to breathe. It's a battle against time. In this first series episode, Styner shows himself to be a no-nonsense doctor. It's also Lee Marvin as rarely seen. He's the young father, and has to show softer emotions, unlike his later iconic roles. Then too, the series' generally high quality is not surprising given the folks behind the scenes—composer Victor Young, photographer Stanley Cortez, producer Worthington Miner, writer James Moser. Each of these talents had outstanding careers either in the movies (Young & Cortez) or in TV (Miner & Moser). So, no wonder this initial entry is a strong one.

(In passing—I doubt if this entry were made today that Dr. Styner would light a cigarette at episode's end.)
