Another Roan DVD Premiere!
The Secret of Doctor Kildare is the fourth entry in the highly popular Doctor Kildare series, which went on to spawn fifteen sequels over the 30’s and 40’s and a groundbreaking 60’s 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. Convinced Dr. Gillespie needs more rest to get over his illness, Kildare refuses to help and instead accepts a young heiress’s case of hysterical blindness. But fate has more tragic surprises ahead for Dr. Kildare as his father is diagnosed with a sudden and terminal illness.
With intense character studies and a heartwarming feel-good ending, The Secret of Doctor Kildare proves to be a crown jewel in the Doctor Kildare series!
