In 1971 it was George C Scott in medical satire “The Hospital” who next mentioned antibodies in film. Down on his luck Scott struggles to find out why patients are dying in his dilapidated teaching hospital while administrators struggle to prevent the building from collapsing.
In the climatic final scene Scott declares “It is all rubbish isn't it. I mean... transplants, anti-bodies, we can produce birth ectogenetically, we can clone people like carrots, and half the kids in this ghetto haven't been inoculated for polio.
“We have established an enormous medical entity and we're sicker than ever. We cure nothing! We heal, nothing! The whole goddamn wretched world, strangulating in front of our eyes.”
On the plus side, it looks like the hospital has excellent parking facilities.
