Synopsis
Although not the first actor to don the scrubs of Max Brand's idealistic young intern, Lew Ayres owned the role for a series of superlative medical dramas that cemented in place all the ample talent that had long been on display, starting with All Quiet on The Western Front (1930). Ayres' costar, the needs-no-superlatives Lionel Barrymore, who, as the grumpy, garrulous and brilliant Dr. Leonard Gillespie found a regular supporting role that was roomy enough to showcase his prodigious gifts that would continue in a series of flicks even after Ayres departed the title role.

The collection includes:
  • YOUNG DR. KILDARE (1938)
  • CALLING DR. KILDARE (1939)
  • THE SECRET OF DR. KILDARE (1939)
  • DR. KILDARE’S STRANGE CASE (1940)
  • DR. KILDARE GOES HOME (1940)
  • DR. KILDARE’S CRISIS (1940)
  • THE PEOPLE VS. DR. KILDARE (1941)
  • DR. KILDARE’S WEDDING DAY (1941)
  • DR. KILDARE’S VICTORY (1942)

        I love that this set is pressed. I think that the video and audio quality are very good. Maybe one exception is that the video is a little dark in places in the first Kildare movie, however it is still completely watchable. The bonus feature of the TV pilot with Lew Ayres as Dr. Kildare in 1960 was welcomed. Dr. K comes across as a rather lonely fellow in the episode, but still completely devoted to medicine, and with a much better demeanor than his mentor Dr. Gillespie! Highly recommended.
