Jane Darwell is the whole show in the 61-minute 20th Century-Fox programmer Private Nurse. The formidable Ms. Darwell is first scene at a birthday party, thrown in her honor by her favorite charge, little Ann Todd. The daughter of ex-gangster Sheldon Leonard, Todd has been raised to believe that her mother is dead and that her father has always been a paragon of virtue. Upon learning the truth, Todd is told the whole story by nurse Darwell. Essentially an extended flashback, Private Nurse served as an acceptable lower-berth entry at the double-feature houses.
