The Miracle of Morgan's Creek

A small-town girl goes overboard with war-time patriotic zeal and marries a soldier she's only met once. He disappears after one night, then she thinks she's pregnant... but she just can't remember her husband's name.
Special features: Preston Sturges and the Miracle of Morgan's Creek; Censorship: Morgan's Creek vs. the production code.

It's more likely that she is pregnant than married. Released in 1944 this is a humorous, cautionary tale albeit a very important topic. As usual Sturges' work is outstanding he wrote, produced and directed this work while fighting the censors every step of the way. ~Mike
