There's no doubt that W.S. Van Dyke was capable of great direction, and therefore it's frustrating that he made so few first rate movies. This one consistently has great scenes followed by duds. Gladys George is woefully miscast as a young nurse but gives a good performance; Franchot Tone, also miscast, makes a strong impression that works too hard against his weak character. Tracy is fine as always as the stiffly moral pal. Great photography, exciting war scenes, excellent montages by Slavko Vorkapich.
