Winter, 1943. The German army has halted the American advance in the mountains of Italy; back-and-forth combat decimates Joe Peterson's platoon. On leave in Naples, Joe meets WAC lieutenant Eleanor MacKay; initially cool, she begins to melt during a bombing raid. Their romance develops despite Joe's periodic returns to the front. But whether he'll come back in the end becomes more than doubtful...

Just after Frank Lovejoy (Maj.) tells William Holden (Sgt.) about his promotion to Lt.; Holden puts on a jacket with his sergeant stiles on it. They drive to a restaurant/bar (Mama Mia's) and his jacket no longer has any sign of stripes. When stripes are removed the impression of the stripes and the stitching can still be seen. His jacket is absolutely pristine. Even if the stripes came off without leaving any marks at all; there would a clean spot where the stripes were. Later, when now-Lt. Peterson is talking to Lt. MacKay in the mail room, the remnants of his old Sergeant's stripes are clearly visible on his left sleeve. See more
