Letterboxd Showdown: Intensive Care

My list for the Letterboxd Showdown of best films about medical professionals. As I'm not a big fan of medical dramas, this was a bit of a tough one for me. I included Young Dr. Kildare, despite my general rule against including films I rated under three stars on these lists, given my fondness for Lionel Barrymore in the series. Included Lifeboat as an honorable mention, as strictly speaking I don't believe that surgical procedure was performed by a medical professional.
