This film rises above any stricture of creed because of the honest humanism of its creators.

This is a "war film," as it appears from the view of civilians who remain at home.

Although Mc Ginty is impatient, the editor begins to relate a long-winded story: After reading an editorial in the Morgan's Creek newspaper on sudden war marriages, grumpy town policeman Officer Kockenlocker (William Demarest) forbids his nearly adult daughter Trudy (Betty Hutton) from attending a farewell dance for soldiers.

Music Score by Leo Shuken and Charles Bradshaw Musical Direction Sigmund Krumgold Art Direction Hans Dreier and Ernst Fegte Edited by Stuart Gilmore Art Direction Hans Dreier and Ernst Fegte Edited by Stuart Gilmore Costumes Edith Head Makeup Artist Wally Westmore Sound Recording Hugo Grenzbach and Walter Oberst Set Decoration Steven Seymour Written and Directed by Preston Sturges PUBLICITY IMAGES AND STILLS Just before Christmas, the editor of the Morgan's Creek newspaper anxiously calls Governor Mc Ginty (Brian Donlevy) to announce some astonishing news.

Still completely unaware of the identity of her husband, Trudy consults with lawyer E. Johnson (Alan Bridge), who says that her marriage is legal, even though she used an assumed name and has no idea who the groom was.

Although she previously spurned Norval's awkward romantic advances, Trudy now encourages him, and Norval, who has been devoted to Trudy since childhood, is stunned by her sudden change of heart.

Among other things, it shows that, while a civilian population in wartime must give up a great deal, the rewards can be commensurate.

(Concerning Iraq, this is something Americans at home have not yet begun to learn or do.) This astonishing film stands, after more than sixty years, as one of those rewards.

Norval and Trudy are brought home by a bevy of police, who have brought nineteen charges against Norval, and refuse to listen to Trudy's explanation.
