Lucas Marsh (Robert Mitchum, The Enemy Below), an ego-driven medical student, has one burning, passionate desire in life… to be a doctor. But his strong belief that a physician should be perfect has turned him into a demanding idealist. Lucas thinks anyone who deals in human life must be infallible, so as he completes his training and sets up practice in a small town, his relentless perfectionism continues to alienate the people closest to him… until a fatal mistake forces him to come to grips with his own imperfections. This compelling drama by the great Stanley Kramer (On the Beach, Inherit the Wind, Judgment at Nuremberg) features an amazing cast that includes Olivia de Havilland (The Heiress), Frank Sinatra (The Manchurian Candidate), Gloria Grahame (In a Lonely Place), Broderick Crawford (Night People), Lee Marvin (Prime Cut), Charles Bickford (The Big Country), Harry Morgan (TV’s M*A*S*H) and Lon Chaney Jr. (The Wolf Man).
