About this work
Doctors partying, delivering baby, walking along in a group of four. "1962's 'The interns' is sort of the 'Valley of the dolls' of the hospital set ... The plot deals with mercy killing, abortion, sexism and Dexedrine; it focuses on three doctors: Michael Callan, a user who is romancing two women, one with money (Anne Helm) and one so he can get a residency with her old boss; James MacArthur, a straight arrow who falls in love with a nurse with a yen for travel (Stefanie Powers); and Cliff Robertson, an older intern who tries to help his model girlfriend (Parker) terminate a pregnancy. Nick Adams plays a buffoon who falls in love with a terminally ill patient (Ellen Davalos)" and "Telly Savalas is the ego-driven chief surgeon who doesn't like women doctors" -- users' comments on the Internet movie database, November 2009
