> Description 
Ben Casey was a medical drama series which ran on ABC from 1961 to 1966. The show was known for its iconic opening titles, which consisted of a hand drawing symbols on a chalkboard, as cast member Sam Jaffe intoned, "Man, woman, birth, death, infinity."

It starred Vince Edwards as Doctor Ben Casey, a young, idealistic surgeon. His mentor was Doctor David Zorba, played by Sam Jaffe. At the beginning of the 1965 season, Zorba left the show, and Franchot Tone came in as the new Chief of Surgery, Doctor Daniel Niles Freeland. The show began running multi-episode stories, and Casey developed a romantic relationship with Jane Hancock (Stella Stevens), who had just emerged from a coma after thirteen years.

Ben Casey was seen as a rival to the contemporary medical series, Doctor Kildare.
