Richard Todd plays an insufferable Scots soldier confined to a World War II military hospital. Ronald Reagan is an all-American patient who befriends the headstrong Scotsman, while Patricia Neal is the compassionate nurse. Gradually the patients grow begrudgingly fond of Todd, and when it is learned that he is suffering from a fatal illness, everyone involved tries to keep his true condition a secret from him. Todd inadvertently discovers the truth, and violently turns against his new buddies. But before the fade-out, friendship wins out over bitterness and self-pity. Filmed in England, Hasty Heart is based on the stage play by John Patrick.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
While it’s certainly true that Ronald Reagan would not have been at home in the plays of, say, Ibsen or Chekhov, he was a much better film actor than his detractors have claimed. It’s easy to chuckle at the 40th U.S. president’s numerous B-movies -- especially the notorious Bedtime for Bonzo -- but at his prime as a Warner Brothers contract player during the ‘40s and ‘50s, Reagan displayed a solid command of his craft that served him well in meaty dramatic roles. The future politician took his nickname from Knute Rockne, All-American (1940), a fictionalized biography of the legendary Notre Dame football coach in which Reagan, playing the dying player George Gipp, exhorts Rockne to someday ask the team to “win one for the Gipper.” The fascinatingly baroque Kings Row (1942) features Reagan’s strongest work, portraying a once-privileged, happy-go-lucky scion of a midwestern town who struggles to rebuild his life after suffering at the hands of a sadistic doctor. (Reagan titled his autobiography Where’s the Rest of Me? after an unforgettable line in the film). Another fine, frequently overlooked Reagan performance can be found in The Hasty Heart (1949), which cast him as a proud Scottish soldier faced with the knowledge that he has only a short time to live. He’s also terrific as a crusading district attorney investigating Ku Klux Klan activity in the gritty Storm Warning (1951). The Winning Team, (1952), a biopic starring Reagan as Hall of Fame baseball pitcher Grover Cleveland Alexander, warrants viewing mainly for the star’s facile performance.
