Cool title, rather humdrum film though. Bogey and June have close to zero chemistry and just the movie on the whole drags and is just plain uninteresting. With so many other engaging and well made war pics, there just isnt much to recommend here.
There could be better chemistry between Bogart and Allyson, but what Brooks defines well is a military surgeon's unique view of what saves lives during war: harsh medical care and passionate affairs of life; revealing war's "circus" survival. Romantically soft-lit nurse flirtations rival moments in which death hovers around harshly-lit shrapnel operations or a loved one fallen by enemy fire without musical score.
