The Carey Treatment ... belongs to its period more than to all time, but its ineffaceable qualities prove that [Blake] Edwards could never be reduced to quack or hack. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

James Coburn brashes out the truth as he plays breezy and brilliant pathologist Peter Carey, confronting hypocrisy and murder in a Boston hospital. Directed by Blake Edwards and adapted from an early novel by Michael Crichton (writing under a pseudonym), The Carey Treatment is an existential murder mystery with a pathologist standing in for the P.I.

Peter Carey accepts a staff position at a staid Boston hospital, under the direction of Dr. J.D. Randall (Dan O'Herlihy). When Dr. Randall's daughter Karen dies following an illegal abortion, Carey's colleague David Tao (prolific character great James Hong) is accused of the crime and Carey sets out to prove his innocence. Along the way, Carey finds time to romance Boston beauty Georgia Hightower (Jennifer O'Neill), chase red herrings down blind alleys of comic satire and confront "The Establishment."

Product Description:

Blake Edwards directed this murder mystery set against the backdrop of a busy metropolitan hospital. Dr. Peter Carey (James Coburn) is a pathologist who has signed on to work with Dr. J.D. Randall (Dan O'Herlihy) at a prominent hospital in Boston. When Randall's daughter Karen (Melissa Torme-March) dies after a botched abortion, another member of the hospital staff, David Tao (James Hong), is charged with her murder. Carey is convinced that Tao is innocent and sets out to prove his point. He also finds time for romance with beautiful Bostonian Georgia Hightower (Jennifer O'Neill). THE CAREY TREATMENT features Pat Hingle as police detective Peterson; Michael Crichton contributed to the screenplay.
