Excellent depiction of how "penacillin" came about in NZ for std's
I saw this movie, or at least most of it, and have since been trying to acquire it for my library.. I am from New Zealand,and i am a retired nurse who trained in NZ after the war..Back then there were not that many advances in medicines compared to the USA..The storyline was well depicted and pretty much close to the real thing of back then..I married a navy man and have since divorced though,but i do know how the American servicemen are when they are overseas,especially down-under..a great movie...adored the storyline so close to home.. I feel that Kerry Fox, did an absolute astounding job as a Registered Nurse,and depicted the uniform well.New Zealand is very pretty, and they showed some beautiful scenery.Rod Steiger,portrayed his character well. This movie ran the gambit of intrigue etc,It brought out the nasty topic of sexually transmitted diseases,and how a drug was needed like penicillin to help cure this disease.It also brought out the desperation of loneliness, and what it drives one to do for that love and affection,even if it is for a few moments and the end result sadly can be std's.
