Movie Info

Pulp fiction writer Max Brand's 1936 creation Dr. Kildare made his screen debut in the amiable person of Joel McCrea in this well-received Paramount production. Aided by Janet (Barbara Stanwyck, young Dr. Kildare saves the life of gangster boss Hanlon (Lloyd Nolan), who awards the intern $1,000 for his troubles. Janet, who is being blackmailed by Innes (Stanley Ridges), one of Hanlon's rivals, attempts to steal the money but Kildare catches her and, disillusioned, returns the loot to Hanlon. But when Janet agrees to Innes' lascivious terms, Kildare thinks better of his decision and arranges for Hanlon to take care of the matter. M-G-M later starred Lew Ayres in a series of 17 "Dr. Kildare" programmers and the character resurfaced in the early 1960s in a television series featuring Richard Chamberlain.

Audience Reviews for Internes Can't Take Money (You Can't Take Money)

★★★ (out of four) Nice, atmospheric vehicle for Barbra Stanwyck. I always like how she played women with a past, often times a little bit naughty. She was a great mix of tough and vulnerable. This film showed both those sides. Stanwyck plays Janet Healy, a woman who has recently been released from prison. Her child had been taken away from her and she is the widow of a bank robber. While being treated at a hospital young Dr. Kildare (Joel McCrea) falls for her. Stanwyck and McCrea have some real chemistry. The film is moody and fun, though nothing overly special. I still liked it. [IMG][/IMG]

Average B programmer that was the first Dr. Kildare film is enhanced by superior cast. Barbara Stanwyck is really the focus of this entry though McCrea makes an earnest Kildare and Lloyd Nolan stands out from the rest of the supporting cast.
