  • Sep 12, 2018
    In a tiny bit of art imitating life, or something like that, Wanda Hendrix (who was married to, but quickly divorced, war hero Audie Murphy, due to his PTSD) cares for 4 former airmen who refuse to get a job for similar reasons. Perhaps the lightest look at PSTD that you're apt to run across, this comedy/romance ends better than Hendrix's marriage did and features Ed O'Brien as a witty ringleader of the 4 (an uneven fit at best). Not terrible.

    Silly and unexceptional but O'Brien is always worth watching.

    This is a movie that takes a comedic look at four servicemen after the war, as most movies of this type were dramamtic, film noir and musicials. But the problem with this movie was that the laughs were far and few between. I mean the effort was there, but this was a film that just didn't get me laughing and I love the old black and white movies.
