Nurse Edith Cavell ★★★ 1939

Fine performances in this true story of Britain's famous nurse who aided the Belgian underground during WWI, transporting wounded soldiers out of the German-occupied country. Decidedly opposes war and, ironically, was released just as WWII began to heat up in 1939. 95m/B VHS, DVD . George Sanders, Edna May Oliver, Zasu Pitts, Robert Coote, May Robson, Anna Neagle; D: Herbert Wilcox.
