The hilarious exploits of first year medical student Simon Sparrow (Dirk Bogarde) as he learns his way around St. Swithins Hospital. After many flirtatious advances by his landlady’s daughter, Sparrow leaves his residence and finds himself thrown in to a flat as a roommate with three other students. He learns rapidly that becoming a doctor isn't quite what is on the minds of his hard living mates. A strong cast including Kenneth More, Donald Sinden, Muriel Pavlow, James Robertson Justice, Kay Kendall and Donald Houston keep the pace and the comedy moving right along. Kenneth More won the BAFTA award for Best British Actor. The film set records as the most watched film in British cinema history and spawned 6 other “Doctor” movies in the series, plus a long running TV series.
