A DOCTOR NEEDS A NURSE, BUT SHE'S HAVING "NUN" OF IT!
on 24 June 2001
Elvis is in fine form as Dr. John Carpenter in this his final Hollywood outing. Elvis once again proves that he can be a serious actor, providing he has the right material. This film is on par with "King Creole" and "Flaming Star". Elvis is a Doctor who needs all the help he can get in his downtown Ghetto surgery. Mary Tyler Moore is the co-star whom, along with two other nurses, are sent to ease the pressure off Dr. Carpenter. But behind every door lies a secret, and Dr. Carpenter finds out the hard way, he (like in every other Elvis movie) falls in love with Michelle, he does'nt quite understand why she keeps rejecting him, when he asks if "there is someone else" in her life, she replies by saying, "you could say that". But soon the truth comes out that the three nurses sent to help him were sent from a "Nunnery". Sister Michelle (Mary Tyler Moore) can't exchange her love of god for the love of Dr. Carpenter.
