Both touching and terrifying
- Jeff Boston
Released in the middle of our 4-year war with jingoistic Japan, "So Proudly We Hail!" has testy dialogue specific to the time, action that has stood the test of time, and timeless convictions now being tested like never before, but not by a ruthless enemy like Tojo's totalitarian imperialists. In the middle of the Colbert classic, the Chaplain tells the others on Christmas Eve that "we are a sentimental people, even though our enemies deride us for it. Have faith in those things in which we believe so we can make those tender and sentimental beliefs, like Christmas, last forever."
The best war movie ever
- Mr. Blandings
Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of war movies but this one is unlike any other you'll see. Instead of the usual tough-talking, macho war-mongering fare, this film deals with people who don't like the war and instead shows the high price of human life. Centering around a group of nurses, this film is the original M*A*S*H in its anti-war dialogue. Yes, the end of the film does give a little shot in the arm for patriotism, but overall it is an intelligent, open-minded film that will leave you emotionally exhausted. Great acting by Claudette Colbert and George Reeves, who have an amazing, totally believable on-screen chemistry. It's a shame they didn't do more movies together.
served as a much needed boost for american morale during the war, outstanding ensemble cast, my only regret is that veronica lake's character dies barely half-way into the movie. she was rivetting when she breaks down and explains her inner torment.
Courageous and beautiful Angels Of Mercy Tribute!
- Steve S.
The cast and crew are superb. Goddard steals the show with her cool, witty and very sexy performance. The chemistry between Paulette and Sonny Tufts is unquestionable. Veronca Lake let's her long, blonde and beautiful hair down only once but when she does she oozes with starking appeal. I was even surprised at the perforamnce of George Reeves - well done! And, Ms. Colbert is her ever professional self. A WWII classic in every sense of the word!
So Proudly We Hail (1943)
The cast is outstanding. Surprisingly brutal for the time and it's not watered down. Great story. Unforgettable due to the powerful screenplay. Excellent in all ways.

This needs to be on DVD!
- Sherri Lynch
Everyone needs to vote to have this top rated movie released onto dvd. My husband was an Army nurse and he said after watching this with me that everyone needs to see this movie to appreciate what nurses go through and went through during WWII, especially on Bataan. These nurses gae their lives and so many of them never got any recognition for their sacrifices for our Country. Please vote to have this movie made into DVD so more cn see this wonderful movie. Thank You.
a blessed profession
Everytime I watch this movie,I feel such a sense of pride. I am nurse. This movie displays the truths of our profession. The intelligence, fortitude, compassion required of an excellent nurse. Nurses are portrayed as human beings with souls that sometime lack nourishment because we have to care for others. I cannot wait for this movie to be added to my classic film collection. I recommend it to every nurse I meet.
So proud and so brave
- loretta easton
I was captivated with this movie. It caught my attention right off the bat and I never moved a muscle until it was over. I laughed, cried and felt the pride that our country had during that time. I just wish we had the same kind of pride now that we had then for our brave people fighting overseas, instead of whining and bickering over every little thing. We take our freedom for granted and it can be taken away if we get to complacent. Claudette Colbert is one of my favorite actresses and she was superb in this movie. I would rate this one of the best all time movies in history.
