User Reviews

This movie should be brought to DVD.
19 September 2006 | by kwipinkySee all my reviews

I agree Susan Hayward is great in this movie. I watched it as a youngster and it stayed with me into my 40's. It is a tearjerker for sure. Hayward played Maggie Cole, a doctor in pain after losing her husband. She is convinced to offer health-care to inner city patients who might not be able to be seen by a doctor. There were many stories in the movie but one stuck out: Dr. Cole cared for a charismatic youngster with leukemia. Although she worked hard to save the young girl, her illness was terminal and unbeatable. Dr. Cole is devastated, but with the help of her friends and co-workers the doctor found strength. The audience learned, through the doctors eyes, the ability to stand up to any awful event that life tossed out. Maggie Cole believed in herself again, and saying goodbye to the pain and suffering allowed her to go on. The message was relevant and needed then, and maybe needed still.

A terrific movie. I would definitely buy a DVD.
