Dr. Kildare shows
11 November 2005 | by turtlemom4baconSee all my reviews

I never missed this show in the 5 years it was on. To me, it was the very best and used to tune out everything else on Thursday nights at 8:30. There was a lot of caring characters and many famous actors & actresses had guest shots every week. I wish they would release this on DVD. I would buy the entire series in a heartbeat! I would lobby MGM, NBC or whatever is necessary to get this accomplished. I have heard that a company in Canada is holding the rights, but do not know that name. If anyone else is interested or has more knowledge, lets try and get this done & released. Richard Chamberlain is a wonderful actor and people of all ages deserve to find out just how great he was when he first started acting. Nancy
