Coma (1978)

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) released Coma to theaters on January 6, 1978. Michael Crichton directed the film which starred Michael Douglas, Rip Torn, and Geneviève Bujold.

‘Coma’ Movie Summary

When Coma begins, something is not right at prestigious Boston Memorial Hospital. Employee Dr. Susan Wheeler (Genivieve Bujold) is devastated when her best friend becomes comatose and eventually dies from an abortion procedure at the hospital. She becomes suspicious when another healthy patient (Magnum P.I. Tom Selleck) also unexpectedly falls into a coma on the operating table.

Dr. Wheeler does some digging and finds that within the last year quite a few healthy patients have lost brain function after routine operations. All of the affected patients were in operating room eight, had a tissue sample taken, and ended up coma patients at the Jefferson Institute.

Susan does more detective work by confronting the hospital administration. She offends the Chief of Anesthesiology, Dr. George (Rip Torn) with her suspicions. She finds allies in her boyfriend, fellow doctor Mark Bellows (Michael Douglas) and Dr. Harris (Richard Widmark) the Chief of Surgery.
