Genre: Drama, Comedy, Doctor, Satire, Black Comedy, Marriage, Murder, Drugs

Tagline: Madness, Murder and Malpractice.

Plot: This black comedy features an alcoholic doctor-turned-administrator who tries to manage an overburdened and chaotic hospital with fatal results. Chayevsky is dead-on in this satire on modern bureaucracies. Sadly, this cult favorite still rings true in our HMO age-but luckily, laughter is still the best medicine. A biting satire, THE HOSPITAL earned two Oscar nominations, including George C. Scott for Best Actor.
