Dr. Gillespie’s Criminal Case

Dr. Gillespie's Criminal Case

Movie: Dr. Gillespie’s Criminal Case
Director: Willis Goldbeck
Produced by: MGM
Released By:
MPAA Rating:

The third of MGM’s Dr. Kildare series to dispense with the services of Dr. Kildare, Dr. Gillespie’s Criminal Case stars crusty old Lionel Barrymore in the title role. The first half of the film concerns Gillespie’s efforts to expedite the romance of Army sergeant Orisin and Marcia Bradburn, with the help of doctors Red Adams and Lee Wong How. The closing reels lapse into melodrama when Gillespie is kidnapped by mentally unstable convict patient Roy Todwell and his gang. In addition to new MGM contractees Van Johnson and Donna Reed, Dr. Gillespie’s Criminal Case gave a boost to young star-in-the-making Margaret O’Brien. Like most of the later films in the series, this one is hampered a bit by its excessive length.
