||Synopsis: Lucas Marsh, an intern bent upon becoming a first-class doctor, not merely a successful one. He courts and marries the warm-hearted Kristina, not out of love but because she is highly knowledgeable in the skills of the operating room and because she has frugally put aside her savings through the years. She will be, as he shrewdly knows, a supportive wife in every way. She helps make him the success he wants to be and cheerfully moves with him to the small town in which he starts his practice. But as much as he tries to be a good husband to the undemanding Kristina, Marsh easily falls into the arms of a local siren and the patience of the long-sorrowing Kristina wears thin. She reasons he no longer needs her and asks for a divorce. A calamity now brings Marsh to his senses. Dr. Runkleman, Marsh's gruff and wise employer, is stricken with a heart attack and requires emergency surgery. Marsh is forced to operate. Written by alfiehitchie

"Not as a Stranger" is an old fashioned medical
melodrama. The basic plot involves a
young man (Mitchum) who is obsessed with
becoming a doctor. Unfortunately, his
obsession causes pain and unhappiness
for the people around him.
Naturally, much of the medical material is
out of date. Some commonplace matters in
1955 now strike us as incredible: a medical
class with no women in it; doctors and
nurses casually smoking; doctors who ride
The "small town" to which Mitchum moves
after graduating from medical school is
portrayed as isolated and rural. What we
see is clearly a small city--bad choice
In the context of the film,we have to accept
Olivia de Havilland as plain and unsophisticated.
Quite a suspension of disbelief.
However, Mitchum is excellent as the young
physician who expects perfection from himself
and all those around him, and Frank Sinatra
is a good choice as Mitchum's cynical--but
Broderick Crawford as the medical professor
Dr. Aarons, and Charles Bickford as Dr. Dave
Runkleman, Mitchum's senior partner, both
turn in solid performances.
Gloria Grahame is perfect as the wealthy widow,
Harriet Lang, who oozes sexuality out of every
Watch for the dramatic scene when Crawford
throws Grey's Anatomy at Sinatra. (Although
beware the message that great medicine is
synonymous with great memory. Memory is where
great medicine starts, not where it ends.)
Two scenes need special comment:
When Mitchum tells a patient with a facial mole,
"This kind is best left alone," he is wrong,
When Mitchum takes over the care of a
critically ill patient of another doctor,
Mitchum is right, right, right.
This movie is dated, but it is still
worth seeing. Rent it and find out!
