Andrew, Do you remember once telling me that a all good research man needed was a notebook, a microscope and a room with a roof over it?

Excellent cast, script in a tale of ethics vs. ease
This film features an excellent cast, ably led by Robert Donat in a performance that is superior to his marvelous performance one year later in Goodbye, Mr. Chips. As a young doctor, he begins with the highest intentions, gradually becoming cynical and disillusioned. He decides it's better to have money than scruples, with predictable results. Outstanding work as well by Rex Harrison and Rosiland Russell and a very good script. Most recommended.
