| Fair Post D-Day Farce in France
"If wolves are men who chase girls, and you aren't a wolf, then girls must chase you" quips Jean Porter, playing a very flirtatious French girl trying to get somewhere with a very reluctant Robert Walker, playing a US corporal-private taking part in the post-D Day liberation of France. The strikingly cute and winsome Ms Porter is more than enough to turn on any red-blooded man, but Walker explains that he doesn't want to compromise his relationship with his girl back home. Nonetheless, he eventually melts to a degree, esp. when it is in the interest of the US Army to have a good relationship with her father, the mayor of the local town....The first half of the film is definitely more fun than the more serious rather pointless second half. Unfortunately, Walker's on again, off again, relationship with Ms. Porter's character has an ugly conclusion, at odds with the general comic tone of the rest of the story.

Robert Walker may remind you in looks of the later James Dean. He also tended to play troubled men, and was in fact very troubled in his private life after first wife Jennifer Jones left him for another man. Like Dean, he died quite young. Despite her charm and looks and introduction to Hollywood films at a very young age, Ms. Porter never achieved first rate stardom, although she has thus far outlived her costar by 60 years.
