War Nurse (1930)

A nurse fights to survive when she's caught behind enemy lines during World War I.

DirEdgar Selwyn CastRobert Montgomery , Anita Page , June Walker .

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Edgar Selwyn. Robert Montgomery, June Walker, Robert Ames, Anita Page, ZaSu Pitts, Marie Prevost, Hedda Hopper, Helen Jerome Eddy, Eddie Nugent, Martha Sleeper. Frank, gritty account of the illicit affairs of American women serving as nurses in France during WW1, based on a risque, anonymously published book. Sometimes melodramatic but earnest and quite powerful, with a climactic battle scene that pulls no punches. Standout photography by Charles Rosher.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Edgar Selwyn. Helen Hayes, Lewis Stone, Neil Hamilton, Robert Young, Cliff Edwards, Jean Hersholt, Marie Prevost, Karen Morley, Charles Winninger, Alan Hale, Frankie Darro. First-rate, fast-moving soaper in the MADAME X vein, about a woman who sacrifices everything so her illegitimate son will have a good life. Hayes won an Oscar portraying woman who goes from bumpkin to Parisian sophisticate to suffering mother to haggard streetwalker--and she's terrific.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Charles Brabin. Clark Gable, Ernest Torrence, Madge Evans, Lew Cody, Marie Prevost, J. Farrell MacDonald. Minor but likable film about a thoroughbred horse and its various owners; Gable is a tough- guy gambler ("C'mere, woman," he says to Evans, grabbing her for a clinch). Beautifully photographed by Harold Rosson.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Albert Rogell. William Boyd, Ginger Rogers, Hobart Bosworth, Fred Kohler, Edgar Kennedy. Trifling but enjoyable story of North Woods logger Bosworth, who expects his son to follow in his footsteps, but Boyd's attention is divided between his job and Rogers, the cute entertainer on the carnival boat. Benefits from location shooting and some hair-raising action scenes: one on a runaway locomotive, the other involving planting TNT in the middle of a logjam.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: George Hill. Wallace Beery, Clark Gable, Conrad Nagel, Dorothy Jordan, Marjorie Rambeau, Marie Prevost, Cliff Edwards. Beery and Gable are boisterous rivals in the Naval Air Force in this often lively but overlong MGM effort, with some still-exciting aerial action. Watch for young Robert Young as a sailor.

DirWilliam A. Seiter CastHerbert Marshall , Jean Arthur , Leo Carillo .
72 min,
CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: William A. Seiter. Herbert Marshall, Jean Arthur, Leo Carrillo, Lionel Stander, Alan Edwards. Arthur and Marshall are superb team in this delightful comedy of wealthy automobile tycoon/inventor and penniless woman, who, for complex reasons, become mobster Carrillo's maid and butler. This film wrongly carried Frank Capra's name as director in many European prints as a fraudulent studio effort to exploit his massive popularity.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Gregory La Cava. William Powell, Carole Lombard, Gail Patrick, Alice Brady, Eugene Pallette, Alan Mowbray, Mischa Auer, Franklin Pangborn. Delightful romp with Lombard and crazy household hiring Powell as butler thinking he's a tramp who needs a job; he teaches them that money isn't everything. Auer is impressive as starving artist, sheltered by patroness Brady. But Pallette--as harried head of household--has some of the best lines. Screenplay by Morrie Ryskind and Eric Hatch, from Hatch's novel. Jane Wyman is an extra in the party scene. Classic screwball comedy; remade in 1957.
