Dr Loomis is starting to crack up even in his very first scene in the original Halloween. He tells his nurse, as they're en route to the asylum, that he wants Myers so sedated before his trial that he will barely be able to stand. "Your compassion is overwhelming, doctor," she mutters. Later, Loomis has followed the escaped madman to Haddonfield and convinces Sheriff Brackett to go with him to the old Myers house. They are startled by a rain gutter suddenly falling through the window, and Loomis pulls a gun. "You must think me a very strange doctor," he says apologetically. This bad case of nerves escalates into full-blown hysteria in subsequent installments, and by part 5 Loomis is terrorizing Myers' poor young niece, a nine year old girl, shaking her, screaming in her face, eventually using her as bait to catch the maniac.But Loomis is not the only objectionable healthcare professional in the film; indeed, he doesn't seem to be Jamie's doctor, nor should he be, and the staff ought to be censured for letting this nutcase repeatedly berate and abuse their patient. Nor is this oversight the extent of their incompetence. There's the hysterical Nurse Patsey, who has a bit too much empathy, I guess, because when Jamie has a nightmare she comes running in screaming and crying, hardly a calming presence. Later Jamie starts having a seizure, so the medics get her on a stretcher, with Patsey running alongside clumsily jabbing the facemask of an ambu bag in her face, and they take her downstairs where the doctor tries to give her a tracheostomy. Loomis fortunately stops him, which is the one medically sound thing he does in the whole movie.
The Farm was originally a dairy farm near Westport, Connecticut a rural area after the 1960s, but became a trendy area by the 1980s. John Travolta and Jane Seymour retired there, and he has since built what is the second largest winery in the United States, now called the Westport Winegrowers. Another of JT's stars, Kelly Preston, has lived nearby for many years, where the two Travoltas were married. d2c66b5586
