Description by OLDIES.com:
When it ran in network TV's prime time in 1954, Medic
was a television milestone. A pioneering, innovative and often controversial show, known for its realistic and honest portrayal of the medical profession, it featured well documented case histories "dedicated to the profession of medicine and to the men and women who labor in its cause." The four Medic episodes here, each one introduced by the stern yet friendly face of Doctor Konrad Styner (Richard Boone), are representative of the well-researched style that helped lead the way for so many of today's doctor and hospital-based programs.
WALL OF SILENCE: A brutal attack by street thugs leaves a young man with severe brain damage and a complete loss of speech.
LIFELINE: The commander of a naval hospital attempts a high-risk surgery to save a dying sailor.
CANDLE OF HOPE: A proud Greek husband is devastated when he learns that his beloved wife can never give him a son.
GLASS OF FEAR: A famous syndicated cartoonist is driven to an emotional collapse by the pressure of a daily deadline.
