Monica Dickens' novel One Pair of Feet provided the basis for this propaganda effort, enlivened immeasurably by Rosamund John's sterling central turn as the architect who feels a calling towards nursing, but has to start on the bottom rung during wartime. But it's not quite a recruiting poster. The film posits the need for change in demanding working conditions which force women to choose between a career in the service or a fulfilling domestic life. Youthful Granger is a wooden romantic prospect, the direction merely functional, yet John finds a tensile determination behind her usual gentility, and there's sterling support from Nesbitt, the battle-axe matron who's had to make her own sacrifices. Producer Howard died midway through filming, when his plane was downed by the Germans, believing erroneously that Churchill was on board.
