Doctor in the House (1954)

Rating:No Rating
Genre:Drama
Release Date:January 1, 1954
Running time:92 minutes
Director:Ralph Thomas

Description: The first of the popular British Doctor comedy series, Doctor in the House stars Dirk Bogarde as callow young medical student Simon Sparrow. Beginning his five-year internship at St. Swithin's Teaching Hospital, Sparrow continually runs afoul of head doctor Sir Lancelot Sprat (James Robertson-Justice). His social life is spiced up when Sparrow is taken under the wings of three student repeaters, who've flunked their prelims and are seeking a second chance. Most of the humor is very basic and not a little vulgar, ranging from the character name Sir Lancelot Sprat (say it really fast) to the now famous What's the bleeding time? routine. The film spawned several theatrical follow-ups, as well as a 1970s TV series; all were based on the semi-satirical novels by Dr. Richard Gordon.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
