Her Favorite Patient
Her Favorite Patient is the TV title for Bedside Manner, an improbable comedy directed by future master of "realism" Andrew L. Stone. Ruth Hussey plays a big-city doctor who travels to a small town to assist her surgeon uncle (Charlie Ruggles). The townsfolk resist the notion of a female physician, but she wins them over by proving to be an expert on all things medical. Test pilot John Carroll, love-struck by Ms. Hussey, fakes a head injury so that he can remain at her side. Despite her high I.Q., Hussey can't see through Carroll's ruse...or perhaps she prefers not to.
