Dr Ki1dare and Nurse Susan
Restored 1962 Lowe Paper Doll
Cover portraits by George Pollard
Clothes and dolls by Nan Pollard
This is a curious set, as the girl dolls are in the exact same poses as Airline Stewardess (Lowe #4913), Young Couple, and Bob Cummings and His Models (Lowe #2407) and Million Dollar Dolls https://papergoodies.com/scripts/prodview.asp?idProduct=2432. The Dr. doll is the same pose as Bob Cummings. Two pages of the gal's clothes are the same as in the Million Dollar book. The casual clothes are sames as Bob's but the Dr. uniforms are new...and the nurse uniforms are new too.
The covers are completely re-painted by wonderful portrait artist, George Pollard, so the likenesses on the dolls (R. Chamberlain) and cover art are superb. The only "Susan" listed in the cast is a receptionist played by Joan Patrick. Actresses who played nurses were: Jean Inness, Maxine Stewart, Jo Helton, Lee Kurty, and Lee Merriweather.
This was first printed by Lowe in 1962 as a cardstock set throughout with everything perforated (badly perforated, which required a lot of repainting.) We cannot do perforating/die cutting.
FYI, it would cost about $800-900 per page to get a perforating die made, then we'd need to engage an industrial press to cut stacks of pre-printed pages, and hope that the registration was perfect...as nothing less would do for me. This should answer your question as to why we don't do die cutting.
There are three dolls; two of Nurse Susan and one of Dr. Kildare, (laser printed on 80# archival cardstock) and 4 pages of clothes (laser printed on 32# archival paper.) All our paper is the very best we can find for use on our large Canon commercial printer. It's satin finished and easy to cut. As the original book was small, ours is nearly the same size at our 8.5x11 finished, stapled book size. Each book is placed in a crystal clear seal-top Mylar bag.
Some TV History on Dr Kildare
Dr. Kildare came to television after having been an extremely successful series of movies in the 1940's. There was something immensely appealing about the story of a young intern in a large metropolitan hospital trying to learn his profession, deal with problems of the patients and win the respect of the senior doctor in his specialty, internal medicine. Kildare was the young intern, Dr. Gillespie was the father figure and Blair General the hospital in which they practiced medicine. During the course of its run, Dr. Kildare went through an evolutionary process. By the third season Kildare was promoted to resident. His intern buddies from the first season, Dr. Agurski and Dr. Gerson were not seen in the subsequent seasons as the program came to center more closely on the patients and their families. In the 1965-66 season the show was aired twice a week as a half hour program rather than once a week for an hour.
Our printing equipment is a professional Canon 3380 Color ImageRunner. We use the very best archival laser papers we can buy for a lasting, beautiful product.
