| Fine Remake
Nice tearjerker with a good cast centers on a hospital maternity ward and the various expectant mothers there. Among the moms-to-be are Geraldine Fitzgerald, Gladys George, Gloria Holden, and Spring Byington. Gale Page holds it all together as the sympathetic head nurse. Rest of the cast includes Jeffrey Lynn, Eve Arden, John Litel, and Johnnie Davis. This is a remake of a great Pre-Code film called Life Begins, which starred Loretta Young. That film was grittier and less glossy than this one. Frankly, I like it more although this one is certainly enjoyable. I recommend checking them both out to see two different approaches to the same material.
