In interviews Jeanne Crain alleged that Eugene Pallette was not only a bigot who refused to share a table with black cast member Clarence Muse, but an admirer of Adolf Hitler as well. Due to the controversy Pallette was fired from the production, with his character downsized to accommodate scenes already completed. See more »
Maggie was a bit too clueless and spoiled to make this one a better film.
The purpose of this film was obvious--the filmmakers wanted to press home the notion that there must be self-sacrifice for the war effort. The problem is that this propaganda message seems a bit too obvious--especially since they made the main character, Maggie, a bit too unrealistic.
When the film begins, Maggie (Jeanne Crain) is marrying Lt. Ferguson. However, it's obvious that they're a bit mismatched. He is a normal everyday guy, she's a spoiled rich brat who is used to having everyone cater to her. However, she's going to be living in a boarding house with a lot of other military wives...and it's going to be tough going because of her ridiculous expectations.
The Maggie character was just poorly written. She either came off as an entitled jerk or a self-less woman who, miraculously, realizes the importance of the war. It's just too black & white in its portrayal of the lady. Overall, a decent enough idea for a wartime film but one that just doesn't seem to work.
