Young Dr. Kildare is still being trained at General Hospital by old, crusty Dr. Gillespie. This time, he tries to rehabilitate Gregory Lane, a brain surgeon depressed over losing too many patients (and incidentally Kildare's romantic rival for nurse Mary Lamont). Lane's losing streak takes a new turn when one of his patients survives...but seems to be insane. Or is the man's strange obsession with Friday the clue to a mystery? To find out, Kildare must take a terrible risk.Written by

Nurse Molly Byrd:
Nurses are just like husbands. You can abuse them, insult them, work 'em to death, jump all over 'em. They'll take it. But give 'em a bad cup of coffee and you got a revolution on your hands.

This entry into the Dr. Kildare series was enjoyable but not as compelling for this reviewer as other installments were.
As usual, Dr. Gillespie allows Dr. Jimmy Kildare to think that Jimmy is making his own decisions, all the while being controlled by the octogenarian.
Nurse Mary Lamont has not yet landed the good doctor, and here is dating Dr. Lane the brain surgeon and our beloved Dr. Kildare.
Once again, Dr. Kildare's parents make an appearance, and Ma Kildare once again gives her son her willing shoulder to lean upon. The series always showed a close parent-child relationship, especially between Jimmy and his mother.
Dr. Kildare must make a decision in this entry which could derail his entire career at Blair General Hospital. This type of plot line would be handled in a much more serious manner today, but it was interesting to see how it was handled back in 1940.
