Elvis in an uncommon dramatic role playing Dr John Carpenter, an inner city Doctor working in a free clinic. Mary Tyler Moore plays a nurse and a catholic Nun who is sent by the catholic action committee with two others dressed as nurses to help him. It about how they make a difference.Written by
This never received a cinema release in the UK. It was premiered instead on BBC One on August 24th, 1971. See more »
The story supposedly takes place in New York City but it was filmed at Universal Studios in California. When the nuns are standing outside their apartment building in what is supposed to be New York City there is a car parked close to them that obviously has California plates on it, revealing the fact that the movie was actually filmed in California.

A hip, young Dr. John Carpenter (Elvis Presley) comes to a bad neighborhood slum to manage a clinic. He hires three nurses, unknowing that they are nuns in plain clothes. One of the nurses (Mary Tyler Moore), falls in love with the guitar playing doctor and has to make up her mind to stay with him or go back to the church. This is Presley's last scripted movie and probably never looked better. Four songs make up the soundtrack featuring the million seller "Rubberneckin'". Also in the cast are Jane Elliot, Barbara McNair, Robert Emhart and Ed Asner. Great for repeat viewing.
