The production of the movie was held up several weeks when Carole Lombard was admitted to the hospital after suffering a miscarriage. The press dubbed it an 'appendectomy' to cover up. See more »
The oxygen cylinder contents gauge on the tank that nurse lee brings to the child's bedside shows nearly three-quarters full. This represents a large volume of oxygen. The contents could not go down as fast as is shown here. Even if she took the regulator off and opened the cylinder all the way (which would make an ear-splitting noise) it wouldn't go down that fast. An H tank (which is the size shown in the film)
holds 7100 cubic liters of oxygen. Oxygen being given with oxygen mask could not drain the tank shown in that short time. See more »
Enjoyed reading A.J.Cronin's books and this film was a big favorite with people in the 1940's and will continue to be for many generations to come. Carol Lombard, (Anne Lee) was type cast as a pretty actress who was well known for her roles in comedy and this film showed the film industry she was capable of being a great dramatic actress which she was in this film. This film portrays the conditions which nurses had to do years ago in England and it is a rather sad film but a very down to earth one. Anne Lee takes the blame for her sister Lucy Lee, (Anne Shirley) for causing a young boy to die because of negligence of her duties. These sisters were both studying to become nurses and Anne already had her certificate to practice. Anne has a very rough life in this story and for some reason she always manages to stand by her sister no matter what trouble she gets into. This is a must see enjoyable Classic Film.
