"The Citadel" is a 1938 film based on the novel by A. J. Cronin, first published in 1937. The book was groundbreaking with its treatment of the contentious theme of medical ethics and is credited with laying the foundation in Great Britain for the introduction of the NHS a decade later. The film was directed by King Vidor and produced by Victor Saville. Robert Donat plays an idealistic, young Scottish doctor dedicated to treating Welsh miners suffering from occupational disease. Initially, he is full of lofty goals, but his noble purpose erodes when he begins to treat aristocratic patients in London. Rosalind Russell stars as the good doctor's wife who tries to set him back on the righteous path. The film was nominated for Oscars in 4 categories: Best Picture, Best Actor (Donat), Direction, and Adapted Screenplay. The film won the Best Picture Award from both the New York Film Critics Circle and the National Board of Review. It is a New York Times Critics' Pick and is also listed in "The New York Times Guide to the Best 1,000 Movies Ever Made."
