Movie Info

Young Dr. Kildare (Lew Ayres) presses his exhausted mentor, Dr. Gillespie (Lionel Barrymore), to go on a much-needed vacation while he takes a case caring for the daughter of Wall Street tycoon Paul Messenger (Lionel Atwill). Kildare pretends to be a friend of the family to examine Nancy (Helen Gilbert) and learns she has blinding headaches. After the housekeeper confides that she has told Nancy she has a tumor like the one that killed her mother, Kildare struggles to make a proper diagnosis.

Audience Reviews for The Secret of Dr. Kildare

  • Sep 23, 2010
    An okay movie. I was a bit annoyed that Dr. Kildare didn't really have any kind of deep dark secret, or any secrets at all, really. I did enjoy the movie, though, it was charming and dramatic. Of course, I knew what was wrong with Dr. Kildare's patient two scenes before he did, so he seemed like an idiot, as did some of the other characters sometimes. This movie started out trying to be a dark dramatic adventure, but ended up a sweet happy family friendly drama instead. It's interesting, but disappointing.
