Like its American namesake, Les Hommes et Blanc (Men in White) is a drama of the medical profession. Raymond Pellegrin stars as Nerac, an idealistic young doctor who feels unsuited to the hustle and bustle of a big-city hospital. Nerac believes that he can serve mankind better by taking a less-lucrative practice in a rural community. Ultimately, he finds his true calling in life, but not before a great many personal crises. Second-billed Jeanne Moreau is given practically nothing to do, and accordingly was ignored by contemporary reviewers. Les Hommes et Blanc was based on the best-selling novel by Andre Soubrion.
