Ben Casey Tidbits

"Man, woman, birth, death, infinity." Introduction to Ben Casey.

Casey and Kildare. TV's heartthrob doctors. If it is important for an author to disclose bias, I was a Dr. Kildare fan. Dr, Casey was too intense! Although Edwards virility appealed to many women.

Specifically Casey was a neurosurgeon at County General Hospital, although he knew a ton about all disciplines of medicene. His mentor was Dr. David Zorba (Sam Jaffe), who left at the beginning of the 1965-1966 season and was replaced by Chief of Surgery Dr. Daniel Freeland (Francot Tone).

Casey got a love interest that year. A woman (Stella Stevens) who had been in a coma for 13 years. Puhlease.

Passings

Francot Tone in 1968 of lung cancer, Sam Jaffe died in 1984 from cancer and Vince Edwards died in 1996 of pancreatic cancer.
