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 »
This is not the finest hospital in England and I dare say I'm not the most lenient Matron. I'll stand no nonsense and I offer no favoritism. You're entitled to one half a day a week off, if you're lucky. Extra duty, if you're not. No smoking. No cosmetics and you share a bedroom. Those are the conditions here, neither better nor worse than I have explained them. If they're not your liking, I'd appreciate your stepping out now rather than wasting your time or mine. I hope you'll be happy here.

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.
