Inspiring story of the Australian nurse who bucked the system and arrogant short sighted doctors to effect real change in the treatment of polio. Roz is great in the title role.

Story of a nurse who develops a treatment for polio in the early 20th century. Of course even in 1946, they have Hollywooded up the movie. Kenny's methods are not accepted by the pig-headed doctors, and she has to fight for 30 years to get her methods accepted.

Good but slightly sappy story of a nun nurse who helps kids with disabilities. A bit ho hum I'm afraid although the acting is solid. Not a stretch for Rosalind Russell.

The outstanding performance from Rosalind Russell as a very dedicated nurse, makes this film work beautifully. It is a bit too melodramatic, but it's always engrossing and interesting. A fine film.

A client just told me about this film about a pioneering nurse/bodyworker. Who knew?

[font=Trebuchet MS][[b]Short Thought:[/b] A surprisingly engrossing and earnest biography of someone who actually deserves and needs it, for once: Australian nurse Elizabeth Kenny fought for thirty years for the medical establishment to recognise her pioneering treatment of polio. As a film, this has a rather odd pacing, suddenly leaping years without telling anyone, but it's a superior Hollywood production otherwise, not overdoing the personal life but giving us enough to actually invest in the character, whom Rosalind Russell plays with surprising restraint and dedication, and without the grandstanding which marred her later career. In addition to being a compelling character piece, it is a fascinating insight into the medical establishment's lack of desire to accept revolutionary ideas.][/font]
