The Disorderly Orderly

Frank Tashlin
USA 1964
90 min

Jerome Littlefield's medical career ends early thanks to a “neurotic identification empathy”, and his future as a male nurse in the Whitestone Sanatorium doesn’t also seem to be a bright one. It was his selfless commitment to a suicidal patient, who would have been kicked out of the hospital by the supervisory board, that healed him. In a furious final sprint Lewis can show again his exceptional talent to start a chain of total destruction.
