There's nothing out of place in The Feminine Touch, a by the numbers melodrama that tells the story of a group of student nurses as they make their way through school. The acting is fine, the direction competent and the story sufficiently interesting to hold the viewers attention. Add it up and you have a watchable movie, but really, not much more than that. Clichéd characters and situations are a major liability in this film. There's doe eyed Susan (Belinda Lee),the cynical world weary Pat (Adrienne Cory) and the handsome Dr Alcott (George Baker)all delivering flat, colourless dialogue in you've seen it all before situations. The film looks great in Technicolor and the pacing is good, but you get the sense that it could have been much better.
