  • "Hutton plays a smalltown girl who finds herself pregnant after a drunken night out with six soldiers, one of whom she has married, but whose name she cannot recall. This is Sturges' blend of slapstick and satire at its most uncompromising. Fast paced action and sustained verbal humour, at times filmed in long fluid takes, target virtually all the pillars of respectability from marriage and politics to religion, Momism and the law. Not least of the film's comic highlights is the clever way that Sturges made this material acceptable to the Production Code without yielding virtually any ground to the Code's dictates, thus exposing its narrow morality which sanctifies marriage in empty legality."@en

  • "Flirtatious blonde Trudy Kockenlocker is disappointed that her father, gruff town constable Ed Kockenlocker, won't let her go to an army dance. She outwits him by getting nerdy Norval Jones--who's had a crush on Trudy since they were teenagers--to take her to the movies, so she can slip out to the dance. The soldiers spike the lemonade and Trudy dances with a number of GIs. During one boogie-woogie number, Trudy's energetic partner tosses her in the air, and she bangs her head on a chandelier, rendering her unconscious. When she wakes up, she discovers that she's wearing a wedding ring, and, a few weeks later, that she's pregnant. But who and where is the husband and father? Confiding only in her younger-but-wiser, wisecracking sister Emmy, she plans to get Norval to marry her. Norval is 4-F because of his extremely nervous condition, but he desires only two things in life: Trudy and to be in the army. Norval's willing to do anything to help her, but whatever Trudy asks him to do only makes things worse!"@en
