Trivia

Screenwriter Dalton Trumbo and director Edward Dmytryk were known for their left-wing political beliefs - they were among the infamous "Hollywood Ten" blacklisted during the McCarthy-era anti-Communist hysteria after the war - and Ginger Rogers, a staunch Republican, began noticing what she interpreted to be "anti-American" speeches in her dialog. Upon complaining, the speeches were given to other actresses. See more »

One of a kind
20 March 2006 | by (San Pablo, CA) – See all my reviews

"Tender Comrade" was the only film made during the second world war showing what it was like to be a war bride. It just about covers every detail of home life during this time period, such as rationing booklets, war plant jobs, friendships, worries, "not to talk about troop movements" in public and everything a war bride had to deal with. I'm sure one cam complain about dialog, scripts, camera angles, etcetera, but life wasn't perfect and this film recreates life during a time when "politically incorrect" was not mandatory. People actually talked like that then. They dressed like that, lived like that. This film is as close to factual representation of a war bride as anyone ever got and I, for one, am thankful it was filmed and still lives on. Everyone seems to remember the soldier, but not so much about what their wives, mothers, sisters and daughters had to endure while being left behind to wait for their return. Thank you, Mr. Dymytryk.
