Men in White

Men is a keenly sensitive translation of the [Sidney Kingsley] stage version to the screen. The story is familiar - the surgeon who gives his best energy to his profession and thus irritates the woman he is to marry and who suggests that she is rich enough to permit him to adapt his office hours to their social engagements. Eventually, she is led to realize the importance of the work.

The story is familiar – the surgeon who gives his best energy to his profession and thus irritates the woman he is to marry and who suggests that she is rich enough to permit him to adapt his office hours to their social engagements. Eventually, she is led to realize the importance of the work.

There is a side plot in a nurse who in an excess of admiration for his skill virtually seduces him and who dies while seeking to avoid the consequence of that tryst.

The story permits Clark Gable to disclose a tenderness wholly foreign to the rough stuff he often does. He dominates the picture, though he has to share many scenes with Jean Hersholt. Myrna Loy is an excellent choice as Gable’s society admirer and reacts perfectly to her assignment. Elizabeth Allen is excellent as the errant nurse.
