      Raquel Stecher Out of the Past There are several storylines happening at once which makes the plot a little difficult to follow. However, that also speaks to the chaotic nature of the environment. Nov 19, 2022 Full Review Christopher Lloyd The Film Yap An impressively produced bit of WWII propaganda filmmaking with Claudette Colbert, Paulette Goddard and Veronica Lake playing nurses who learn war is hell, but romance eases the pain. Rated: 4/5 Oct 31, 2022 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Those who might be tempted to derisively write off this drama about American nurses in World War II as a “woman's weepie” had best reconsider, since it's as brutal as Objective, Burma!, Wake Island, or any other he-man WWII offering from the period. Rated: 3.5/4 Sep 17, 2022 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com 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. Rated: C+ Jun 8, 2007 Full Review Brian Webster Apollo Guide 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. Rated: 71/100 May 21, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

      david l So Proudly We Hail! is a 40s war drama that was admirably feminist for its time. Claudette Colbert was reliably excellent here while Paulette Goddard stole the show in one of her best roles. Technically speaking, the movie's well shot and competently made. However, the directing is weak, the pacing is bad and the overall script was totally uninspired, leading to a forgettable affair. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review s r A feel good patriotic movie that should the trials that nurses faced in Philippines during WW2. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review steve d different and effective. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The best inspiring movie ever made! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member The movie definitely has a propaganda tone, but it's not distracting and it doesn't stand in the way the surprisingly frequent battle scenes throughout the movie. Paulette Goddard is the best actor in this movie, while Claudette Colbert is (as usual) still stuck in the emotionless acting of the 1930's. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Harrowing performances in a brutally real portrayal of the American retreat from the Philippines.
