LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Edgar Selwyn. Robert Montgomery, June Walker, Robert Ames, Anita Page, ZaSu Pitts, Marie Prevost, Hedda Hopper, Helen Jerome Eddy, Eddie Nugent, Martha Sleeper. Frank, gritty account of the illicit affairs of American women serving as nurses in France during WW1, based on a risque, anonymously published book. Sometimes melodramatic but earnest and quite powerful, with a climactic battle scene that pulls no punches. Standout photography by Charles Rosher.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Edgar Selwyn. Diana Wynyard, Lewis Stone, Phillips Holmes, May Robson, Ruth Selwyn, Robert Young, Hedda Hopper. Top-notch drama in which nurse Wynyard falls for ill-fated flyer Young during WW1 and becomes pregnant; the scenario eventually jumps ahead to 1940, with the world on the brink of a new Great War. This powder keg of a film is fascinating on many levels, particularly as it looks into the "future'' and uncannily depicts the world at war and the mainstream popularity of television.

D: S. Sylvan Simon. Ann Sothern, Ian Hunter, Roland Young, Reginald Gardiner, Billie Burke, Lynne Carver, Dan Dailey, Jr. Pretty bad comedy of Chinese orphan mending new family's problems. Good cast with inferior material. Based on the George S. KaufmanMarc Connelly play filmed before in 1923 and 1930 (as NOT SO DUMB).

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: George B. Seitz. John Carroll, Ruth Hussey, Bruce Cabot, Phil Brown, Reginald Owen, Henry Travers, Evelyn Ankers, Sheldon Leonard. Carroll is a happy-go-lucky French-Canadian trapper who romances Hussey while getting into scrapes with the Northwest Mounted Police and Brooklynesque bad guys Cabot and Leonard. He also has a habit of regularly bursting into his favorite song, "Saskatchewan.'' Cheerfully simple-minded B remake of a story filmed before in 1918 and 1922.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: John Ford. John Wayne, Maureen O'Hara, Dan Dailey, Ward Bond, Ken Curtis, Edmund Lowe, Kenneth Tobey, Sig Ruman. Biography of Frank "Spig'' Wead, pioneer WW1 aviator who later turned to screenwriting (including AIR MAIL and THEY WERE EXPENDABLE for Ford) after an accident; first half is slapstick comedy, with no sense of period detail, then abruptly changes to drama for balance of film. Very mixed bag; film buffs will have fun watching Bond play "John Dodge,'' spoofing director Ford.

John Wayne, Dan Dailey, and Maureen O'Hara star in one of John Ford's most personal films, in which he pays tribute to a man he knew and admired in real life, pioneering World War I... more
