Routine war film, 6 October 2005
Author: malcolmgsw from london

This is a fairly routine run of the mill war film which features the work of army surgeons in the first world war.It starts with a scene on a ship in a convoy in World War 2 and then goes back to flashback.What is so strange is that Jane Wyatt appears not to have aged in the 25 years since her World War 1 experiences,other than her hairdo has altered.However James Ellison has gone grey.Hollywood always seemed to have strange ideas as to how actors should age in a film.The story also features Jane Wyatt as the love interest fought over by a Surgeon and by an injured flier.Guess which one she chases!All i can say in conclusion is that it passes an hour without too much trouble.However don't make a special effort to see it.
