Night Nurse Instrueret af William A. Wellman
If the first half of NIGHT NURSE contrives the flimsiest pretexts for nurse trainees Stanwyck and Joan Blondell to strip to their nightgowns, the back end gets serious and assays greater moral weight from its ridiculous gangster plot than a bare synopsis could suggest. Wellman’s political agenda is less coherent, less central than what Stephanie Rothman would do with the subgenre four decades later in THE STUDENT NURSES, but everything has to start somewhere.

There are precious few “ethics” on display in William Wellman’s brief and brutal film Night Nurse, a bluntly titled and efficiently directed Pre-Code film from Warner Bros…. Wellman and star Barbara Stanwyck would make five films together, and in this, their first outing, it’s clear that Stanwyck’s innate toughness as a performer, coupled with her unrelenting work ethic, found favor with Wellman, who was a very tough customer himself.

Barbara Stanwyck and Joan Blondell become fast pals while going through their nursing training, and despite a rather intricate and serious plot line that develops, the picture never betrays the simplicity of that paldom and its power, with Wellman often stopping the action at hand to relish the various ways they look out for each other in a patriarchal world.
