Healer is a 1994 American dramatic film starring Tyrone Power Jr., Tobey Maguire, David McCallum, John Johnston, Turhan Bey, DeLane Matthews and directed by John G. Thomas.

Plot[edit]

An ex-con has just been paroled to a work-release program where he must work off his final year as an ambulance Emergency Medical Technician in the retirement resort, Seabreeze. David McCallum plays a comedic role as the "Jackal" an opportunistic drifter who uses the emergency system as a personal taxi service to allow him to feed his drug habit and get out of trouble. Turhan Bey came out of an over forty year absence from film acting to play an elderly man confined to a nursing home who provides the main character reason to carry on in an incredibly demanding job. Tobey Maguire had one of his earliest roles as a stoned teenager in a car wreck. (Opening night film of the 1994 Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Did not find a distributor.)
