Self-absorbed Dr. Lee Johnson enlists with the Army medical corps during World War II, more out of a feeling that it's "the thing to do" rather than deep-seated patriotism. On his first day, he's put into place by 'Snapshot', a sassy and attractive nurse. Their initial antagonism blossoms into romance. Lee then finds himself torn with guilt over being unfaithful to his wife, Penny, who's waiting for him back home. Written by

When Dr. Johnson and Snapshot are trapped behind German lines during the Battle of the Bulge, Snapshot asks if they should try to go towards Cologne (Germany). At this stage of the war, Dec. 1944, the allies had not yet crossed into Germany, except in one or two places, and only in toehold positions. See more »
A small town doctor goes to war as an Army surgeon.
Clark Gable plays a self centered, over achieving physician that proves his worthiness as an Army surgeon. Anne Baxter is the dutiful and absorbing wife that finally realizes that her husband is romancing his nurse(Lana Turner)between bombings and marathon mending of WWII. This is not one of Gable's better performances; but Miss Turner is stunning as 'Snapshot' McCall, the nurse every soldier dreams of.
Other cast members of note are: Ray Collins, John Hodiak, Marshall Thompson and Cameron Mitchell. Mervyn LeRoy directs this dreary drama. In spite of Gable's lack of effort, Turner more than makes this lengthy film memorable.
