A great show they should have on DVD
16 March 2004 | by filmsfan38See all my reviews

I used to watch this show (along with Dr. Kildare) which was on around the same era, and loved them both. This was in the 1960's. I just had to see Ben Casey show every week with the handsome Vince Edwards. Sam Jaffe as Dr. Zorba was also very good. I never watched Vince Edwards much after that, but to me he will always be Ben Casey.

They should bring out some episodes of Ben Casey on DVD or VHS? They bring out lots of other DVD's not half as good as the Ben Casey show was on TV. There must be lots of us still around who were young in the 60's who would buy them. Great show. Loved it. Bring it out on DVD soon.
