Ruth Gordon’s play is the source of this delightful comedy (written by Oscar® winner Sidney Buchman, 1941, Here Comes Mr. Jordan) about a newspaper reporter who quits to join the Army during WW2, infuriating his editor and perplexing his wife, a famous novelist and screenwriter. She moves to a run-down apartment by the base to be near him, and spends more time dealing with the dilapidated housing than she does with him (he must sleep in the barracks). To make matters worse: at almost 40, he’s having trouble remembering all the things he’s supposed to be learning. Can the marriage survive? Will America win the war without him? Starring: Irene Dunne, Alexander Knox, Charles Coburn, Jeff Donnell, Lee Patrick. Director: Charles Vidor (Gilda). Newly remastered.
