  • NATIONAL HEALTH, OR NURSE NORTON'S AFFAIR is an antic filmization of Peter Nichols' play, originally staged by Britain's National Theatre. A scattershot satire of the red tape and inconsistencies of England's National Health program, the film is set in the men's ward of an old, crumbling hospital. Moments of lunatic farce dovetail into scenes of blood-drenched human tragedy, leading one wag to label this film CARRY ON DYING. The film's highlight is a lachrymose lampoon of TV medical soap operas. The cast of NATIONAL HEALTH is comprised of some of the most polished farceurs in the British isles. Nurse Norton is played by Lynn Redgrave (who ironically later starred in the American hospital-based sitcom HOUSE CALLS), while other key roles are filled by TV comedienne Eleanor Bron, CARRY ON alumnus Jim Dale and future WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? star Bob Hoskins.
