Miracle of Morgan's Creek

-- Synopsis:
     A Good Comedy. Trudy Kockenlocker (Betty Hutton) is a small-town girl who has soft spot for American soldiers. Trudy wakes up the morning after a wild farewell party for the troops to find that she is married to someone but can't remember which of the six soldiers it could be and to make matters worse ... she's pregnant. The 4-F local boy Norval Jones (Eddie Bracken) has been in love with Trudy for years and tries to help her find a way out of her predicaments. Trudy ends up falling in love with Norval and the plot thickens. Nominated for an Oscar.

* Features:
     Very Good Song and Dance W.W.II Era Musical. Betty Hutton does some fancy Jitterbugging as they bar hop to local clubs with multiple soldiers, one over-zealous dancer lifts her and she hits her head on the Disco Mirror Ball hanging from the ceiling," kinda funny. Hutton is a fun girl who does a good job.
