CastIan Bannen Michael Redgrave Vanessa Redgrave Lionel Jeffries
NotesB/W Tensions between surgeons in a hospital. Real scenes of open-heart surgery shown on closed circuit TV. First film role for Vanessa Redgrave, and nice to have your dad along for support. There is also a film of the same name from 1932 of the 'mad doctor' variety.
