White Corridors

Saturday 4 November @ 5.30pm | Arc Cinema| $16/13

1951 | CTC | 102 mins| UK | D: Pat Jackson

Prefiguring the multi-layered narratives of hospital dramas that later become popular on TV, this beautifully crafted drama is driven by a single strong central character – an ambitious female surgeon in a provincial hospital whose compassion leads her take risks that her corrupt and weak male peers won’t take. It’s one of the finest roles for Googie Withers, expressing all of her strength and charisma as a courageous and principled professional female in a male domain. Filmed, as Jackson preferred, in semi-documentary style in a real working hospital, with a supporting cast of non-professional actors playing characters based on their real working lives, White Corridors also gives Petula Clark her first significant screen role as a nervous young nurse mentored by Withers.
