What are people saying?

  • SpacePirate's rating of the film Calling Dr. Kildare

    Not one of my fav serials, but a solid series that seemingly lasted forever. Decent story w/ Barrymore as irascible as ever, attacking his lines w/ gusto and really elevating the proceedings (then again he is a fav of mine). Ayres is good, but shows signs of boredom in the role which foreshadow his eventual exit. Turner was at peak bombshell status here imo, and never looked sexier...wheres my time machine? 3 stars
