They Also Serve Who Only Stand and Wait
8 June 2011 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This bizarre little fantasy story starts with a French dress designer during the Great War who wishes to serve in the army to defend his country. Hélas! He is too small so, brooding, he returns to his craft and designs a gown that causes the man who is married to or is courting the wearer of the dress to do something for France. So the husband of the first owner donates three ambulances to the French and the fiancé of the second joins the British Army.

It's got a writing credit for Earl Derr Biggers, best known as the creator of Charlie Chan, and an early acting credit for the wonderful yet almost forgotten Alma Rubens, but while there is nothing particularly wrong with it, director Lynn Reynolds, who specialized in westerns, doesn't add too much to it. Even Miss Rubens doesn't get enough close-ups to make a real impact. The net effect is a pious bit of propaganda, urging us to stand fast and contribute what we can.
