Writer-director Preston Sturges is generally regarded as one of the
greatest comic talents ever, and his impeccable track record--including
The Lady Eve and Sullivan's Travels--is more than worthy of the praise.
Often overlooked, The Miracle Of Morgan's Creek ranks with Sturges'
absolute best work.
Sturges takes an almost Capra-esque WWII America and turns it on its
pointy little head, with Betty Hutton as a girl who's more than willing
to give "the boys" departing for the war the utmost reason to fight for
our country. Stripped of her usual production numbers, Hutton cranks up
her comic acting skills and creates a surprisingly rich
characterization of a young woman straining against the restrictive
social attitudes of the time. Eddie Bracken is his usual self-effacing
self, and his sad-sack Norval Jones is an earnest, often moving
portrayal of the kind of understanding, devotion and love almost never
seen in American movies of the era.
A "screwball comedy" only on paper, the often frenetic pacing and
physical humor was sufficient to distract censors (and often audiences)
from Morgan Creek's almost brutally derisive satire about the hypocrisy
of small town "values" and military behavior during wartime, satire
that still resonates given the current political climate. No target is
safe, from "the troops" and bucolic Anywhere USA to state governors,
the Dionne quints, and Adolf Hitler. Sturges pushed hard against the
production code and probably earned a few ulcers slipping racy plot
twists and subversive dialogue past the censors, but the results were
well worth the Maalox. One of the funniest and most pointed satirical
comedies ever produced.
