70th anniversary! DCP projection

“Characteristically hectic Sturges amalgam of satire and slapstick, hitting out at such sacred cows as Momism and religion as it tells of the predicament of Hutton, a lively smalltown girl who finds herself pregnant after a drunken binge during which she married one of six unknown soldiers. Enter the stuttering oaf Bracken who loves her, to help out as stand-in father and watch agog as the town itself gets caught up in an inexorable whirl of chaos. Great verbal gags and non-sequiturs, fast-paced action, and a thorough irreverence for all things deemed respectable – politicians, policemen and magistrates included – make it a lasting delight.” – Time Out (London)
