Cop's daughter Trudy Kockenlocker (Betty Hutton — who else?) comes back pregnant from a date with a soldier, but it's ok. She actually married... Ratsky-Watsky?! Splenetic dad William Demarest drags perennially hapless Eddie Bracken to the rescue, in Sturges' small-town version of the Immaculate Conception. James Agee said it was "like taking a nun on a roller coaster... one of the most violently funny comedies that ever came out of Hollywood."
“Like taking a nun on a roller coaster ride… one of Hollywood’s most violently funny comedies.”
