Dark Delusion (1947) is an American film, released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and starring James Craig, Lionel Barrymore, and Lucille Bremer. The film was the last in the Dr. Kildare film series released by MGM.


Dr. Gillespie (Barrymore) asks a young surgeon, Dr. Tommy Coalt (Craig), to go to the small town of Bayhurst to replace a local doctor while he is on assignment to the Occupation effort in post-World War II Europe. There, Coalt is asked to sign mental-health commitment papers on a beautiful young socialite, Cynthia Grace (Bremer). Coalt thinks there is something amiss, and begins his own investigation.


According to MGM records, the movie was not a hit, earning $475,000 in the US and Canada and $243,000 elsewhere, making a loss to the studio of $448,000.[1]
