Movie Info

When an esteemed but aging surgeon makes a fatal mistake in the operating room, an idealistic young physician moved by the older man's torment takes the blame. It is a decision that will change his life forever. A young Errol Flynn headlines a poignant, romantic medical drama that sweeps from a great metropolitan hospital to the wilds of Montana, from career obsession to religious transformation. The film is based on a bestseller by Lloyd C. Douglas, whose other page-to-screen books include Magnificent Obsession and The Robe. Like those works, Green Light emphasizes spiritual values and the film's inspiring tone and redemptive storyline helped make it another hit for a charismatic star on the rise.

Critic Reviews for Green Light

All Critics (2)

...the whole thing is soaked with inspirational goo, through a sort of miracle-man character who, for no apparent reason, dominates the action.

Errol Flynn is dashing and romantic, Anita Louise is beautiful and vague, Sir Cedric Hardwicke is saintly and august though a trifle chilly. No one manages to be very convincing, and the film as a whole is only intermittently interesting.
