TRIVIA NOTE: The Dr. Kildare character was created by author Max Brand (under the pen name for Frederick Schiller Faust) in a series of short stories. Between 1938 and 1947, several movies were made starring   Lew Ayres as Kildare and Lionel Barrymore as Gillespie (these actors continued their roles in a late 1940s radio network series).

In the early 1970s, the Dr. Kildare franchise was revived as YOUNG DR. KILDARE/SYN/1972 starring Mark Jenkins as Dr. James Kildare and Gary Merrill as Dr. Leonard Gillespie with Claiborne Cary as Nurse; Norma Crane as Nurse Connors; Joyce Van Patten as Nurse Marvin; and Marsha Mason as Nurse Marsha Lord.
