TheMovie was released in 1942, starring Monty Woolley as Whiteside, Creator/BetteDavis as Maggie, and Ann Sheridan as Lorraine. Woolley had originated the role on Broadway but was not the studio's first choice, being relatively unknown to film audiences at the time. Creator/JohnBarrymore read for the part, but his severe alcoholism kept him from getting the role (he died not long after). Creator/OrsonWelles wanted the part, and Creator/CharlesLaughton was suggested, but Woolley wound up reprising his role after all.

** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He really does care about Maggie though, and is generally kind to people of lower social standing, like the Stanley's children.

-->''"I am not only walking out on this case, Mr. Whiteside, I am leaving the nursing profession. I became a nurse because all my life, ever since I was a little girl, I was filled with the idea of serving a suffering humanity. After one month with you, Mr. Whiteside, I am going to work in a munitions factory. From now on, anything I can do to help exterminate the human race will fill me with the greatest of pleasure."''
