Movie Info

John Mills made his seventh screen appearance in this British "quota quickie". Mills plays a supposed orphan who is actually the son of a medicine show huckster (Leslie Fuller). The shifty showman finances Mills' medical school education, keeping his identity secret all the while. It is all but inevitable that Mills will graduate, become a crusader against patent-medicine quacks, and come to loggerheads with his own father. John Mills would have to pay his dues with several subsequent low-budget pictures before achieving full stardom with Brown on Resolution (35). Mills' later status as an award-winning international star was certainly not due to such tripe as Doctor's Orders. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
