Medical soap opera from MGM
15 June 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Franchot Tone is the doctor Between Two Women. He's a promising surgeon in love with nurse Maureen O'Sullivan, but she's married to Anthony Nace who is an abusive loser. But when he gets socialite Virginia Bruce as a patient her glamor bedazzles him. He's married to Bruce soon enough and there's O'Sullivan carrying around a Statue Of Liberty size torch for Tone.

As by this time the Code is firmly in place there are certain parameters to be observed before true love finds a way. The whole film plays like an overlong episode from General Hospital. And speaking of hospitals sharp eyed movie fans will recognize the sets from Blair General Hospital in the Dr. Kildare series. No way Louis B. Mayer was going to allow those to stand idly by while they were between Kildare pictures.

The three leads and the supporting cast MGM gave them do a fine job in this medical soap opera. We've seen it all before.
