A month later "Dr. Kildare" was reborn as an NBC television series with Chamberlain in the title role. He was a !ull-blo«7i star \\it.hin weeks, Chamberlain, a modest, pleasant youne man, now laces the real celebrity's ordeal en rouie to and from his noontime rare steak and salad. Eyes follow his prop-ess lo his table. Visitors whisper to each other, even fellow players stop talking shop. The yminc alar hnnrtlpv tlw whole thine (jracclully, but it is easy to understand why R lot of stars prefer sandwiches and cold drinks in their dressing rooms. Chamberlain is at work on next Mason's batch of "Kildare" epi- todes, havjnc spent most o! his vacation makinc his first movie «.·: a star, "TVili^hl ol Honor," in which he plays a lawyer.

The most cogent analysis ol the former is quoted from director- writer Joseph Mantaewjcz: Taylor and Burton are "two actors who don't know how to get ofl-stace because there's no script-writer there to show them how." .
