Top Critic

Paramount went out of its way to deglamorize its stars, Claudette Colbert, Veronica Lake and Paulette Goddard as WWII army nurses, but even by the era's standards this well-intentioned tribute was fake, prompting critic James Agee's nasty review.

Full Review… | June 8, 2007

Creates real tension, and as long as you can live with 1940s-style special effects, this is a reasonably effective war movie from the unique perspective of army nurses.

Audience Reviews for So Proudly We Hail!


Three words: Claudette Colbert, Veronica Lake & Paulette Goddard. Oh wait, that's six words (seven if you count the "&"). Gloriously sentimental and probably the most patriotic film I've ever seen.

Ultra patriotic look at women at war in WWII. Veronica is tough as nails.
