Long Description:

McKenzie on MGM War Nurse: 30 September 1930, reporting Joy: "I have talked with Irving [Thalberg] and Ed Mannix at great length over and over. Their attitude has been a little queer all the way through [to objections to the film from local nurses association]. Not the usual Thalberg reaction. Their attitude at the moment is, why should any small group of people decide what the rest of the world should see?"
