Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Paramount went out of its way to deglamorize its stars, Claudette Colbert, Veronica Lake and Paulette Goddard as WWII army nurses, but even by the era's standards this well-intentioned tribute was fake, prompting critic James Agee's nasty review."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Creates real tension, and as long as you can live with 1940s-style special effects, this is a reasonably effective war movie from the unique perspective of army nurses."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
