The Miracle of Morgan's Creek

“A volcanically burgeoning small-town girl (Betty Hutton) gets drunk and is impregnated by one of several soldiers, she can't remember which. Her father (William Demarest), her younger sister (Diana Lynn), and her devoted 4-F lover (Eddie Bracken) do all they can to help her out. The result is a shambles, from which they are delivered by a ‘miracle' which entails its own cynical comments on the sanctity of law, order, parenthood...the American home - to say nothing of...cherished...beliefs about bright-lipped youth, childhood sweethearts, Mister Right, and the glamor of war.”
