RKO Radio's Army Surgeon is something of a rarity: A WW2 drama set mostly in WW1. On board a transport ship bound for Europe, middle-aged Army nurse Jane Wyatt flashes back to her experience in the first world conflict. Foremost in her recollections is the romantic triangle involving Wyatt, military doctor James Ellison, and devil-may-care aviator Kent Taylor. Back in the present-1942, that is-Wyatt and one of her two former sweethearts are joyously reunited. Posting a loss of $46,000 (surprising, for a war picture) Army Surgeon was RKO's final 1942 release, ending the year on a sour note.
