Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie I bought because I like Joel McCrea a lot. And like most of the time he's good, though not at his very, very best. I think it must be the first movie I've seen with Betty Field. She's a nice actress. I wouldn't buy a movie just because she's in it, but if she'd happen to be in one I buy for one reason or another I wouldn't mind at all.

The movie has an unussual subject: the story of the man who invented that ether could be used for anestetics during surgery. I don't know how close the story is to the truth, but it's certainly an entertaining movie. Well done.
