The White Parade Director: Irving Cummings Screenplay: Rian James, Jesse L.

The DVD has been created directly from the surviving film reels, so in addition to the expected film artefacts and glitches caused by missing frames, there is a somewhat distracting fuzzy image throughout. Humorously, the DVD contains the entire footage from each reel, including some frames with the words 'End of Reel' emblazoned in large text. Despite a title that sounds like the sequel to The Birth of a Nation, The White Parade actually refers to the nursing profession (even though none of my nurse friends had ever heard that expression before).

A group of young women converge on a teaching hospital to spend three years in training to be nurses. The story mainly focuses on June Arden (Young), who in an attempt to fit in with the popular girls, pretends to be the fiancee of the wealthy Ronald Hall III (Boles) after seeing his picture in the society pages. When one of the other girls questions her, she agrees to meet with Hall to prove it. Luckily for her, the two actually fall for each other, and so the deception morphs into reality. But as June approaches the end of her training, she has to decide whether she wants to pursue a life of caring for sick people or a life with a family. (Apparently, in the 1930s, it was impossible to have both.

Again, my nurse friends might have something to say about that.). Initially, it's a little tough to keep track of all the characters. The opening scenes introduce us to a number of nursing students all at once - including a largish woman who everyone casually refers to as 'Pudgy' with seemingly no awareness of any potential offense - so it's difficult to retain interest without a singular story to follow. Fortunately, it doesn't take too long for June to clearly emerge as our heroine and the story finds its feet and becomes rather involving. The script is witty in only that way that 1930s films can be, bolstered by elements of screwball comedy. And speaking of elements common to the 1930s, you won't be surprised to hear sexist attitudes from the men, as when Ronald attempts to persuade June to give up nursing to be his wife, explaining that it's just as honorable to serve one as it is to serve many. Surprisingly, though, the conclusion defies the stereotype and June sacrifices married life for her career.

One further criticism is the lack of music scoring in the film. I hesitate to bring that up in case it's just a matter of the score never being included on the surviving print. Perhaps the original theatrical release contained more music.

Rian James

If not, it seems like a missed opportunity. Several scenes felt awkwardly silent. Loretta Young (pictured, with John Boles) as the strong-willed June delivers a brilliant performance, charming and passionate. You won't find a lot of other well-known faces (which may explain why it's never received a commercial home video release).

Perhaps the most recognisable performer after Young is Jane Darwell (the matriarch from ) as the nurses' guardian inexplicably nicknamed Sailor. Like East Lynne, I won't be able to view this one, so I was happy to read your take on it, Matt. (It was more favorable than The New York Times). I checked the crew credits and IMDB lists a musical director and three other musicians, but they went uncredited for some reason. Maybe the director didn't like what he heard and removed the score??

They'll probably be a few more best picture nominees that I won't be able to find, but thankfully, I should get to see those that probably will be in contention for the top prize. Turner Classic Movies is showing six of them, but three are in February, during their 30 Days of Oscar programming.
