Medical ethics have changed considerably since this movie was made in 1955. Mr Porter enters Miss Dove's room offering to fly her to any hospital she wishes for the operation. This means Dr Baker told him of her condition before telling Miss Dove. In the regulations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Of 1996 (HIPAA), this would never have happened. HIPAA restricts access to a patient's medical information. In 2019, Dr Baker would require permission from Miss Dove to inform anyone else of her condition. See more »

I can't understand why this movie was never put on DVD or at least video. I haven't even seen it on the TV for years, but I have seen it a couple of times years ago. It is a touching story about a dedicated schoolteacher with a passion for teaching. Miss Dove is played by Jennifer Jones. A young Robert Stack is in the movie and there are some very touching moments.
Too bad it wasn't on DVD. If you see it listed on TV. jump at the chance to watch it if you like classics, because this is one good classic. Keep a hanky handy.
