Dr. Kildare

SERIES Richard Chamberlain was a '60s heartthrob long before '80s miniseries "Shogun" and "The Thorn Birds," hitting stardom as the earnest intern in NBC's five-season saga of raw emotion in an urban hospital. Its first season of 33 episodes arrives in bundled half-season sets, featuring Lee Marvin, Rip Torn, William Shatner, Jean Stapleton, Suzanne Pleshette, many more.

EXTRAS None, but remastered episodes look great.
