How many of us watch Dr. Kildare with a very young Richard Chamberlain. My family and I never missed a Show. I fell in Love with Yvette Mimieux when I was about 10. I saw her on TV in Tiger Tiger. Her smile, her vulnerability, resonated with my soul. They went on to star in the film Joy In The Morning. Both are beautiful souls.
My little film on- Joy In The Morning
Yvette Mimieux continues her surfing. She and Kildare go to the beach at night and they “make out”. He is infatuated with her but cant get her to accept the epilepsy. She has many smaller siezures. Kildare meets all the beach bums and beatnicks of that time. Ultimately she goes for a surf, catches the wave off her life and has a grand mal siezure at the same time. She drowns and Kildare is there to pronounce her dead. GREAT episode with a sad ending.
