A dedicated physician/professor espouses some controversial theories, then further scandalizes the university community by marrying a student who just happens to be pregnant.
Editor's Note
A lovely movie featuring Cary Grant in one of his more inscrutable roles as an angel of mercy to the sick, recalling his work in THE BISHOP'S WIFE. PEOPLE WILL TALK focuses on Dr. Praetorius, a nontraditional doctor whose patients and medical students love him, while his success spurs the jealousy of fellow doctors, including teaching rival Shunderson. Content with his life, the doctor is thrown a curve ball when a beautiful but unmarried mother-to-be confirms her pregnancy at his clinic, then tries to shoot herself to avoid shaming her father. Taking unconventional healing a step farther, Praetorius marries her; their happiness is disrupted when Shunderson's mysterious past is brought into the light, perhaps to topple Praetorius's reputation and career. Weaving in the theme that doctors should treat the whole person, not only the disease, PEOPLE WILL TALK graces the pantheon of comic, romantic dramas; it is based on the play DR. PRAETORIUS, by Curt Goetz.

Plot Summary
People will talk about anything unusual, and people love to talk about Dr. Praetorius (Cary Grant), whether they are his medical students exclaiming over his teaching techniques, his women patients swooning over him, or a jealous teaching rival spreading terrible rumors. A firm believer in making people well in both body and spirit, Dr. Praetorius will try any means, traditional or not, to fix his patients. But when the doctor encounters lovely, unwed, and pregnant Deborah, he takes his theories one step further in this comic romantic drama directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz.
