John Landis on

The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek

Released 1944
Distributor Paramount

Blithely thumbing his nose at the Hays office, Preston Sturges’s wartime farce concerns a virginal young woman who goes a little too far in her support for the troops – the fact that her name, Trudy Kockenlocker, is not the movie’s most outrageous element should tell you all you need to know. Starring Eddie Bracken and Betty Hutton at the top of their games and the explosively funny William Demarest as Trudy’s pratfall-prone pop.
