A number of changes were made when adapting the film's source novel to the screen. The story's central protagonist, Dr. Susan Wheeler, was a feminist blonde medical student in the book. In the film, she is a brunette second year surgical resident. The feminist content of the novel was substantially cut down for the film, except for some arguments between the main couple. Moreover, the medical institute building in the book was situated in the city, whereas in the movie the building is located in an outer suburb.
