A beautiful story of a man who wants to do the right thing but is “Helped” by some Marine “Friends” he meets on the way home and once home it snowballs with the whole town involved until it all comes crashing down when the truth is finally revealed. This is a 1944 movie and WWII was still going on so it has a lot of war related awareness in there and about small town America and traditional family values. Plus there is a nice love interest that will not disappoint you at the ending. This review goes out to both the DVD and the free viewing Amazon provided with this purchase.

This film is what drew me into Preston Sturges' world. I absolutely love the screwball comedy and Eddie Bracken's frantic effort to keep the lid on his situation. The girlfriend and the one liners played off each other are classic. A wonderful film and just so funny. The character actors that were part of Sturges world continued to make his films truly great. Don't miss it.
