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

Made a couple years after the end of WW II, Clark Gable is Colonel Johnson, on a ship, being questioned by a reporter. as Johnson tells his story in flashback, we learn about his impressive, extensive background in medicine. and married to Ann Baxter. She will be nominated for best actress for "All About Eve", a couple years later. the plot of the story seems to be the debate over getting involved in world politics, or minding your own business, and looking after yourself. Lana Turner is Lt. McCall, who has already lost a husband who got involved in conflicts around the world. of course, Johnson and McCall clash, giving us the reason fo the film. director Mervyn LeRoy had worked with both Lana Turner and Gable numerous times. LeRoy directed some great films. was nominated for Random Harvest. it's pretty good. takes on several issues. like a really long episode of MASH.
