Would bacteriophages kill resistant bacteria?

Dear reader,

Behind the retorical question in my 'Subject' is the idea of using virulent
bacteriophages for killing antibiotic resistant bacteria. A well chosen virus
should be able to pass through a mammal digestion system and infect the
resistant bacterium when it gets in contact with it.

I would like comments to this idea, if you have any.
