  • Great True Story!

    This film tells the story of two of our greatest doctors - Dr. Walter Reed and Dr. Charles Finlay - and their efforts to control and research yellow fever. It was their work that led to the vaccine over 20 years after these stories in Cuba. While Doctor Reed developed the vaccine, he gave complete credit to Dr. Finlay's research for being the catalyst for the vaccine's efficacy. (When I was transferred to Southeast Asia in 1970, I had to have this vaccine and I was very grateful for all those who risked their lives in its development.) Robert Montgomery moves this film along and should be credited for making a scientific subject into a film we could all understand. A very young Buddy Ebsen contributes to this as well. Of course, there is a romantic edge here with Montgomery falling for one of the nurses but it isn't heavily dwelled on. I liked this film very much.

    A tribute to Walter Reed. A good primer to the factual events. One blatant omission is of Army nurse Clara Maass who died from volunteering to be bitten by infected mosquitoes.
