Storyline

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 Daniel Bubbeo <dbubbeo@cmp.com>

4 April 1999 | by gammillSee all my reviews

This is a very enjoyable piece of film making. Lana Turner and Clark Gable work well together in this likeable World War 2 light drama. A must for both Lana and Clark fans. Not a brilliant piece but again enjoyable.
