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

This chapter, towards the center of the Dr. Kildare films, stars Lew Ayres, as usual. and of course, hospital cohorts Lionel Barrymore and Laraine Day. The Doc gets a new job opportunity which would be a step up, but likes the job (and pretty nurses) right where he works now. Also in the plot, a crazy patient with a tumor. And anyone who has watched five or ten films will recognize big, goofy sidekick Nat Pendleton, who always hangs around. No surprises in these Kildare movies, but they are good clean fun. Barrymore is the senior doctor, belligerent as always, storming around the hospital, but always coming out as the older, wiser fatherly type. Ayres was nominated for Johnny Belinda in 1948, playing... what else... a doctor. Directed by Harold Bucquet, who direct a boatload of Kildare films. and two of Bucquet's last several films were with Katharine Hepburn. Then he died in 1946, at the young age of 54, but the cause doesn't seem to be listed anywhere.
