Sentimental drama about an elderly Jewish selfless doctor in the Brooklyn slums, who cares about his patients even if they have no money or are jerks.

Audience Reviews for The Last Angry Man

While it is interesting to see the elderly Muni out and about in a late 50s film, it is of note only because it was his last film. This tale of an idealistic doctor is only passable.
