Blu-ray Review: The Hospital (1971)

When I first heard of The Hospital and the fact it starred George C. Scott, I immediately pictured 90 odd minutes of him screaming at doctors, nurses and patients alike, which thankfully isn’t the case despite the odd outburst from him here and there. The iconic actor is Dr. Bock,…
