> Description 
Dr. Kildare was an NBC medical drama television series which ran from September 27, 1961 until September 9, 1965. A total of 190 episodes were made.

It told the story of a young intern, Dr. James Kildare (Richard Chamberlain), working in a fictional large metropolitan hospital (Blair General) whilst trying to learn his profession, deal with problems of the patients, and win the respect of the senior doctor, Dr. Leonard Gillespie (Raymond Massey).

The series was largely responsible for making Chamberlain a teen idol in the 1960s. He also recorded a song, entitled Three Stars Will Shine Tonight, based on its famous theme tune.
