Storyline

The title represents the hopeful, ambitious students at a hospital training school and is primarily a story of the stern discipline and laborious physical and mental toil they endure in order to become nurses and join the White Parade. It is told mainly through the character of June Arden who finds romance with Ronald Hall III on the way, with side stories of the other girls who find failure, success, laughs and tears on the way. The forerunner of umpteen dozens of TV series over the past forty years. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

The 24 Year Old Jesse Lasky Jr
22 August 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

The 24 year old Jesse Lasky jr got his break on this film as a co-writer learning how to collaborate with other established writers. Although the film plods along, there are worse films out there. I still think he was lucky to get on this project, but nevertheless, the world that we live in is unfair.
