Plot: Black comedy in which a suicidal doctor struggles to find meaning in his life while a murderer stalks the halls of his hospital.
Story: Herbert Bock is chief of medicine in a major teaching hospital. His wife has left him, he is impotent and his children have both disowned him. He is toying with the idea of suicide when patients begin dying, not from complications, but from the erroneous treatments the Hospital is giving them. People in the wrong beds are given wrong medicines, sent to operating theaters for incorrect surgery, and found in waiting rooms dead of natural causes. Barbara Drummond has come to take her comatose father back to the Sioux reservation where he operates a clinic and they each reach out to each other for emotional support, as a shadowy figure stalks the patients and staff of the hospital.
Did you know: According to TCM host Robert Osborne, Paddy Chayefsky passed on having Walter Matthau or Burt Lancaster in George C. Scott's role, and either Jane Fonda, Ali MacGraw, or Candice Bergen in Diana Rigg's.
