Storyline

During their first year of internship at New North Hospital, a group of aspiring doctors undergo both personal and professional upheavals. John Paul Otis destroys his medical career when he falls in love with celebrated model Lisa Cardigan and tries to steal pills from the hospital in order to abort her pregnancy. His lifelong friend, Lew Worship, feels duty-bound to report the theft, and Otis is expelled. Lew, who begins internship with plans to become a surgeon, becomes dedicated to obstetrics. He falls in love with a student nurse, Gloria, and tries to persuade her to marry him and give up her dream of going abroad. Intern Considine, who is anxious to study under psychiatrist Dr. Bonny, becomes so involved in two simultaneous romances that he loses sight of his goal and suffers a nervous collapse.

Campy. Find all the future stars
13 July 2007 | by davek-12See all my reviews

Neat movie. A gold mine of young and seasoned actors.. Book the baby Dano, Find the bubbling crude Buddy, Save the PT boat Cliff, have a sucker Tele, have a Heart to hart Steph...Along with Nick Addams, who's career was cut short by an untimely death, and What ever became of Mike Callan? Campy and slow, Pre womens lib, a must see for young women who need a laugh.

Med students and profs hanging out at the local bar discussing medical ethics, when they should be at the dorm studying for an exam, or killing a keg. I think it's worth the watch to see these actors early in there careers. Have some popcorn handy.
