The Hospital (1971) – IMDb


Edit

Storyline

Dr. Herbert Bock (George C. Scott), the chief of medicine in a New York City teaching hospital, is contemplating suicide. He’s impotent, his wife has left him, and his children aren’t speaking to him. His hospital is also suffering from a recent spate of inexplicable deaths. In the midst of these setbacks, Bock is romantically drawn to the much younger Barbara Drummond (Dame Diana Rigg), whose father is a patient. As Barbara restores Bock’s will to live, it turns out that the hospital deaths are murders.

Quotes

Barbara:
We could really use you down there, you know there’s a curiously high incidence of TB. You would be a doctor again, Herb. You would be necessary again. If you love me, I don’t see what other choice you have?

Herbert Bock:
What do you mean if I love you? I raped you in a suicidal rage, how do we get to love and children all the sudden?
