| Ann Ayers lost a star from my rating...
...for her tiresome portrayal of d├ębutante Cynthia 'Cookie' Charles, a patient who has a beer sign fall on her and a piece of the sign embedded in her heart. Once Cookie begins recovering she has the hots for the recent victim of tragedy, Dr. James Kildare, the surgeon who saved her life. However, her moves are so obvious she might as well be sending up flares. It's too bad she didn't buy some popcorn and see the earlier Kildare movies or she would know that slow, steady, and sweet are how you win the heart of James Kildare, not with overt come-ons.

The rest of the film is great. The series has mercifully removed Red Skelton from the role of orderly - Red's a great comic, but this just was not his style. Unfortunately, Nat Pendleton is still absent in the same role. On the light side there's a DT patient that runs through the hospital looking for his pink elephants, some great cigarette rolling by head nurse Molly Byrd, and a comic bit involving Doctor Carew who is mistaken for - both a maniac and a ghost??? The serious side involves an agreement between Blair and another hospital involving a dividing line between their territories as to where emergency cases go. A young couple in love - an intern and a nurse- have their jobs become casualties of the technicalities of this agreement. Dr. Kildare decides to help them out, first because their cause is just, and second because the two of them probably remind him of himself and Mary Lamont in happier times.

Highly recommended as a good entry in the series and unfortunately, the last with Lew Ayres as the suave Dr. K.
