Which ultimately makes it a better film if a less popular one with an escape seeking public who already had their fair share of trauma. Years later the television series "China Beach" would feature an episode Fever that was a worthy homage to this film.
In that episode Nurse McMurphy comes home to Kansas where: " she goes to work as ward nurse at the local hospital while trying to make peace with her increasingly neurotic mother who does not approve of her fast, stressful lifestyle and bitterly tries to cling onto the past". I was reminded of that episode while watching Cliff Harper Guy Madison trying to deal with his mother.
Particularly a scene Til The End Of Time - Dancing Fantasy - Day Dream her mother throws McMurphy's fatigue uniforms away and a panicked McMurphy frantically rushes to the curb to retrieve them from the garbage can. The point being that both mothers want the family to resume their lives from the point they were at before the war. And while a part of each veteran wants this same thing, another part of them realizes that it is impossible; so they end up marking time for a period until they can get things sorted out internally.
Their readjustment process is one of reconciling the desire to have things as they once were with the desire need to hang on to the changes or growth they have undergone. Director Edward Dmytryk symbolically dispels the notion that Cliff can ever pick up his life from where he left off, he does this through an early scene where Cliff discovers that his old civilian clothes are far too small for him.
Although played for laughs this scene conveys more than just the physical changes to Cliff during the three years he was been a Marine. Fresh-faced Helen Ingersoll Jean Porter - Hollywood's all-time cutest actress is a perfect fit for the pre-war Cliff; the type of girl he would be pursuing if things could magically go back to the way they were. Cliff's attraction dynamic with these two females says in a nutshell everything the film is trying to illustrate.
Thankfully Williams and McGuire have an effortless chemistry that helps them sell both their mutual attraction and their reluctance to move forward and let go of cherished parts of the past. The plot summary is a bit misleading, saying "three" marines have a hard time readjusting to civilian life and giving Robert Mitchum and Bill Williams soon to be television's Kit Carson equal billing with Madison and McGuire; as if there are three equally weighted parallel stories insert "The Best Years of Our Lives" here.
The story centers on Cliff Harper, there are only a few brief scenes that do not Til The End Of Time - Dancing Fantasy - Day Dream Madison. So fans of "Surfside Six" will get a full dose of their favorite star.
My favorite scene is the one where Porter and Williams "cut a rug" to the Down N Dirty - Autograph - Loud And Clear of the jukebox in the old soda joint. The most nostalgic scene was shot at the old Iceland skating palace. It looks like Porter does her own skating while someone doubles for McGuire. Unfortunately they did not go on location for the beach scene, and Til The End Of Time - Dancing Fantasy - Day Dream projected beach background requires considerable suspension of disbelief.
Then again, what do I know? I'm only a child. Sign In. Keep track Traffic Jam - Snoop Doggy Dogg* - Tha Doggfather everything you watch; tell your friends.
