Film Details

A Special Event! Film Classics in 35mm!


United States | 1971 | Arthur Hiller


Right before he wrote Network, Paddy Chayefsky penned this savagely funny black comedy about modern health care. Like that subsequent TV satire, it won Chayefsky an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. George C. Scott stars as the beleaguered Chief of Medicine at a metropolitan hospital beset with problems ranging from ineptitude to murder. Though the doctor himself suffers from impotence and depression, he carries on in the face of disaster. This rarely revived classic has a 100% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Diana Rigg co-stars. 103 min.

Special admission $11; members, CIA, CSU & CWRU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.

Presented as part of the 2018 Cleveland Humanities Festival (theme: “Health”), coordinated by the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities at CWRU. Visit for a complete list of festival programs.
