Editorial Reviews

Although not the first actor to don the scrubs of Max Brand's Dr. Kildare, Lew Ayres soon became synonymous with the young intern, playing the unconventional doctor in nine films for MGM from 1938 until 1942. Lionel Barrymore starred opposite as the curmudgeonly mentor Dr. Gillespie while lovely Laraine Day played love interest nurse Mary Lamont.

Warner Archive has done it again by releasing yet another of its famed film series on DVD. All 9 of the MGM films are included across 5 discs. I purchased mine directly from the Warner Archive for $10 less than here. My set is pressed, not burned. Trailers are included as is a failed tv pilot (30 mins) from 1961 with Lee Ayres returning to the role as a more mature Kildare. These films are great fun and Lionel Barrymore steals every one of them. Loaded with MGM up and comers like Lana Turner.

I hope Warner gets around to the Barrymore/Dr. Gillespie films made after Ayres was unfairly sacked from MGM as a conscientious objector during WW II (he served with distinction as a non-combat medic 1942-46).

Warner is also releasing the Richard Chamberlain tv series from the early 60s to DVD. The series is much more serious than these early films. I purchased season 1 from Amazon, and to my shock the set was also pressed and not burned!

if you have ever listened to Dr Kildare on the radio you can appreciate the non violence of the show. there is a real plot to the story. also you can see the advances in medicine since this time period. a movie that the whole family can watch. some of the movies the sound is low and you really have to turn up the volume just to hear the movie normally.

I remember watching the Dr. Kildare series on television 50 years ago and now I'm enjoying them again. All the actors are perfect in their roles, and the humour just grabs your funny bone and takes you on a romp.
