In an earlier draft of the script, intern Eagan planted the skeleton in a baby carriage, not Lora's bed. The startled Laura dropped the baby she was holding, with tragic results. Eagan admitted to his guilt and was fired from the hospital. However, the sequence was changed to the one which is now appears in the film. See more »
During the surgery scene, all the doctors, nurses, and observers are wearing face masks but only their mouths are covered. Their noses are sticking out above the masks. There is no point in wearing a surgical mask if the nostrils are exposed. See more »
why this is the best film ever (especially if you are a pediatric night nurse)
"Night Nurse" is my favorite film , in a big way sister! This movie contains humor on various levels. Barbara Stanwyck and Joan Blondell are 2 tough broads who can hold their own against the evil Doctor Granger and even "Nick The Chauffeur" played by Clark Gable. It does help to be an actual pediatric night nurse to understand this movie to its full potential. The camp is both intentional and unintentional. The movie has a rebel flair with the nurses mouthing off to authority and even befriending a bootlegger (who is one of the heroes of the film).The movie is pre-code so it's pretty spicy for the 30's . You can even see Barbara and Joan in their skivvies.The medical lingo is very amusing. Barbara Stanwyck's character has "blood type 4h" and they got some very pudgy little kids to play the starving children. I own the video and have passed it along to co-workers who are also pediatric night nurses and it has become a cult favorite amongst my collegues.
