George C. Scott delivers an OscarĀ(r)-nominated* performance as a brilliant doctor in a hospital beset by murders, madness and mayhem in this "ferocious, powerful movie of resounding proportions" (Cue). Directed by Arthur Hiller (Love Story) from an OscarĀ(r)-winnning** script by Paddy Chayefsky (Network), this intensely provocative drama will forever change the way you look at modern medicine. Dr. Bock's (Scott) life is in shambles. His wife has left him, his children don't talk to him and his once beloved teaching hospital is falling apart. As he teeters on the brink of a nervous breakdown, Brock falls for a patient's seductively charming daughter (Diana Rigg) who not only gives him something to live for but might even change his life forever. *1971: Actor **1971: Original Screenplay
