Many of the early Hollywood films focused on the role of doctors and the choices that they made between becoming rich and aiding society. This was one of the better offerings.

Brit Robert Donat gives a strong, Oscar-nominated performance in King Vidor's quite faithful adaptation of Cronin's best selling novel about the moral crisis of an idealistic doctor.

This is such an inspiring and outstanding story, extremely well written, excellent direction. Robert Donat gives an amazing performance. The rest of the cast is great as well. Fine cinematography. A gem of a classic.

WOW seriously? No latest user reviews from anyone?
The Citadel is a great moral fable about a doctor who starts as an assistant and then progresses to a high class hospital where they don't even treat ill people but just charging them astronomical amounts of money for not being sick. The hero doesn't realizes the real purpose of medicine until his best friend dies under the knife. After that he delivers a great speech about how doctors should cure the sick without worrying about their professional conduct and gives examples of great doctors of the past. There is something about doctors and the moral dilemmas they face that really attracts me. I always thought that these subject matters only work in TV series but The Citadel proves otherwise.
