Whereas some stars, in my opinion were better suited for one of the two, Veronica Lake was exceptional in BOTH. Her comedic timing really doesn’t get enough credit. I, personally, think she stood toe to toe with other great comedic actresses such as Lucille Ball and Rosalind Russell when it came to comedies. As for dramas (including film noirs), she was (again) as talented as anyone.
In addition to Veronica Lake, How Proudly We Hail (1943) starred several actresses who could do anything asked of a role – Claudette Colbert and Paulette Goodard. What. A. Cast!
How Proudly We Hail’s Plot: Nurses returning from the war in the Philippines recall their experiences, both in combat and love.
You can find the wonderful How Proudly We Hail on dvd (link to the dvd on Amazon). Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be on Prime Video yet.
