THE MIRACLE OF MORGAN'S CREEK
1944, Paramount, 98 min, Dir: Preston Sturges

Betty Hutton plays a World War II-era party girl who has a little too much fun while out with a soldier one night; when morning comes, she’s pregnant with only a vague memory of what happened. Writer-director Preston Sturges’ cheerfully eccentric riff on the Nativity story is as hilarious and inventive as anything he ever did, and astonishingly risqué for a Production Code-era film. Sturges regulars Eddie Bracken and William Demarest join Hutton in this comedy classic. [35mm]
