| Low budget, low quality...
During WWII, Hollywood made a bazillion war films meant to drum up support for the services back home. Many of these were very good...and a few, like "Parachute Nurse", that are third-rate films which really weren't made very well.

"Parachute Nurse" was from Columbia Pictures, a studio that mostly made B-movies. Bs were short, lower budgeted movies that were meant as the second film for a double-feature. Some were very good, most, however, were quickly made and it showed it. In the case of "Parachute Nurse" the biggest problem isn't the mostly no-name cast but the terrible writing...something they never would have allowed with an A-picture. The women are generally called 'girls' and, frankly, they act like girls--with cat fights and petty problems instead of acting like women who want to serve their country. Also, the male instructors are horny sexual harassers...and the 'girls' love 'em for it! By today's standards, it's pretty embarrassing though such attitudes weren't exactly unusual for the day. There are also stereotypes (such as the stupid fat girl) are signs of sloppy writing. Overall, a dopey film that is watchable...but could have been so much better if the writing had been a priority.
