Storyline

A "good-time girl", raised by her somewhat lax divorced father, finds herself involved in an accidental death, and the only way she's able to get out of it is to volunteer--albeit reluctantly--to be a nurse in the war effort. She travels to England and is assigned to a hospital under a very strict matron. What the girl doesn't know is that the matron is the mother she has never seen. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Oscar-nominated film exists at UCLA
31 July 2002 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

This is one of a dozen or so Republic films that exist solely within the UCLA archives. The film was nominated for an Oscar for Special Effects. UCLA holds three copies - one is missing forty feet, one is missing five feet and one is missing one reel. The film is being held for preservation and is not viewable by the public.
