Women in War (1940) DVD-R

Quick Overview

Starring Elsie Janis, Wendy Barrie, Patric Knowles, Mae Clarke, Dennie Moore

Directed by John H. Auer



Print: black/white

Runtime: 71 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



Musical comedy favorite Elsie Janis, who gained renown in WW1 as "The Sweetheart of the

AEF", returned to the screen after a long absence in Republic's Women in War. The story is

the old chestnut about two volunteer Red Cross nurses, Pamela (Wendy Barrie) and Gail

(Mae Clarke), both in love with dashing aviator Larry (Patric Knowles). The producers

brought the storyline up-to-date by plunking it in the middle of the London Blitz, German air

raids and all. As a result, Women in War was one of the first Hollywood productions to

recreate the Nazi bombing of London, which it did with commendable credibility. Top-billed

Elsie Janis plays O'Neill, "den mother" of the volunteer nurses; surprisingly, she is afforded

no singing opportunities, but manages to light up the screen all the same.
