| Dr. Kildare and a family secret
Thanks to Turner Classic Movies, I have been enjoying the series, never having seen them before. The Dr. Kildare series was the precursor of shows like Medical Center, Marcus Welby, M*A*S*H*, ER, and Grey's Anatomy, and a slew of other shows I am sure as well.

I found this series entry to be worth viewing. Another reviewer made some valid points about the weakness of some character motivations, but I still can see why Mary could react the way she does when discovering the truth, which Jimmy Kildare has kept from her.

Robert Young turns in an excellent performance as Mary's brother, proving how versatile an actor he was. He wasn't always the boring and stable father from Father Knows Best (and later on becoming the Dr. Welby mentioned above).

We learn a bit more about Dr. Gillespie's past; he had a brother who died. We also learn a bit more about how and why he feels special towards Molly Byrd.

Overall, another entry worth watching and enjoying.
