Secret Of Dr. Kildare, The

The Secret of Doctor Kildare is the third entry in the highly popular Doctor Kildare series, which went on to spawn fifteen sequels over the 30s and 40s and a groundbreaking 60s television series. In this outing young Dr. Jimmy Kildare, played by series staple Lew Ayars, is recruited by his cancer-stricken mentor Dr. Gillespie (screen legend Lionel Barrymore) to assist in a pneumonia study.

After the overworked Gillespie collapses from exhaustion, Dr. Kildare finds himself juggling the pneumonia study and a young heiress's case of hysterical blindness. The stakes are high as the doctor attempts to restore sight to the young beauty, whose family fortune could help fund Gillespie's studies and cure pneumonia. The Secret of Dr. Kildare proves to be the crown jewel of the Dr. Kildare series.
