Romanticized version of Florence Nightingale's successful fight for sanitary medical conditions during the Crimean War. This version concentrates upon the political complexities the hard-headed nurse, played by Neagle, had to battle. The cast gives fine impressions of the many historical

personalities, and the contrast in settings--between stately British homes and the squalor of the hospital--focuses the viewer's attentions on what the real battles were. Honorable mention should be given to Lewthwaite's editing of the war sequences.
