Storyline

The title represents the hopeful, ambitious students at a hospital training school and is primarily a story of the stern discipline and laborious physical and mental toil they endure in order to become nurses and join the White Parade. It is told mainly through the character of June Arden who finds romance with Ronald Hall III on the way, with side stories of the other girls who find failure, success, laughs and tears on the way. The forerunner of umpteen dozens of TV series over the past forty years. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Combination documentary romance salute to nursing.
11 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This extremely rare film is a combination view of the very rigorous training nurses used to have to undergo in the 1930s in order to get their nursing degrees and then a rather uninspiring forbidden romance between a nurse and a doctor.

Although the romance part of the film was most probably what attracted audiences, it is the serious salute to nursing and the importance of both strict confidentiality and strict adherence to responsible behavior in the plot that set it apart.

I viewed this film in its entirety at UCLA - they own a print - over 25 years ago. Deservedly Oscar nominated for Best Film and Best Sound.
