Storyline

Blonde 'doll' Christine Carroll finds too late that her fiancée Mike is a gangster and she's his unwitting accessory. Emerging from prison with dark hair and an interest in nursing, she becomes a nurse's aide in a war hospital where her good looks quickly arouse the interest of battle-fatigued, 'melancholic' patient Steve Kimberly. When it's clear that Steve has fallen hard, she faces the dilemma of what and when to tell him. Her decision has melodramatic consequences... Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Silly fluff
3 November 2018 | by ClaudetteColbertFanSee all my reviews

The film is nothing but fluff--not even enjoyable fluff. I watched this film because I'm a fan of Loretta Young. It's a bit of a soap-opera and the plot is so unbelievable it's laughable. I found myself laughing at how silly the story was because it didn't make much sense. I found Chandler's character to be a bit annoying. He was always butt-hurt at something Young's character did or didn't do. What a cry baby!
