for an upcoming article, I need both specific references and general thoughts
about Jewish doctors, identified specifically as such   or identifiable by
other means  in film and television (not literature)

My own initial overview: most are psychiatrists or psychoanalysts, few appear
before the Fifties; most are depicted as intellectual  compassionate
politically left  alienated  outsiders  embittered  all or some of the above

your thoughts would be greatly appreciated

many thanks
