The Doctor and the Girl Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P24236~Glenn Ford~glennford]] first appeared under the MGM banner in The Doctor and the Girl. Ford stars as Dr. Michael Corday, scion of a highly respected family of physicians. When he marries one of his patients, shopgirl Evelyn Heldon (Janet Leigh), Corday is thrown out of his house by his tradition-bound father ([[Performer~P13835~Charles Coburn~charlescoburn]]). Denied a posh Park Avenue practice, Corday becomes a selflessly dedicated general practitioner, while his rebellious sister Fabienne ([[Performer~P17761~Gloria de Haven~gloriadehaven]]) likewise leaves home and hearth in favor of Greenwich Village bohemianism. Father and son are tearfully reconciled when Fabienne dies as the result of a botched abortion (though her operation is never so identified). Doctor and the Girl is a toned-down, telescoped adaptation of Maxence van der Meersh's best-selling novel [[Feature~V133777~Bodies and Souls~corpsetames]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
