Dr Kildare

Dr Kildare

Dr. James Kildare is a fictional American medical doctor character, originally created in the 1930s by the author Frederick Schiller Faust under the pen name Max Brand.

Shortly after the character’s first appearance in a magazine story, Paramount Pictures used the story and character as the basis for the 1937 film Internes Can’t Take Money.

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) subsequently acquired the rights and featured Kildare as the primary character in a series of American theatrical films in the late 1930s and early 1940s, several of which were co-written by Faust (as Max Brand), who also continued to write magazine stories and novels about the character until the early 1940s.
