This is a rare picture in that it shows wars effects from the female perspective. Two manicurists enlist in the service to do their part, which turns out to be as entertainers at the front. One falls in love with a playboy/wagon driver but the other one loves the same guy. Some light comedy takes place before the war asserts itself. It is schmaltzy and overdone in the acting department and Vera Reynolds showed no flair for comedy and a little for drama. She was a weak spot in the film, which takes a dark turn towards the end. During the German attack some great explosions took place, very realistic and very close to the actors. It was mildly entertaining but, in truth, some old movies have dubious value save for the fact that they are old. "Corporal Kate" is one such.
