Brief Synopsis

Edward G. Robinson's dignified performance as the aging surgeon whose heart transplant gets his protege slapped with a lawsuit after the donor's wife charges that her husband was allowed to die so that the young doctor could save his mentor highlights this pilot movie for the popular "Medical Center" series (1969-76). Chad Everett assumed the part originated by Richard Bradford (who virtually disappeared as Everett's star ascended), while James Daly and Audrey Totter continued as regulars.
