The Constipated Crooner . . .

I am the first to admit that I do not understand the female mind . . . and have yet to meet the man who does. Now, before I go any further, please don't let my ramblings stop you from watching this touching story about a girl with too many suitors . . . the story is a mighty fine way to spend an hour of your time . . . But I just never understood girls like the star of this show. Mary Beth Hughes, as nightclub singer Lily Durrell, has the misfortune of being proposed to by nearly every man she meets. I have known girls like her, but never, ever understood what made them tick. She always has a look of concern on her face, sometimes it looks like a sad, world-on-my-shoulder look, and sometimes it looks like she is thinking, 'What a poor sap this guy is . . . I must be careful not to destroy his stupid hopes and dreams, the poor dear.' Then, sometimes as I look at her and try to imagine what is making her tick, I think it might just be . . . dare I say it? . . . a bad case of constipation or something . . . Maybe that pained look on her face was just a bad breakfast? But that said, I must be the only man in the world to be puzzled at her personality, because every man in the movie instantly falls for her and soon proposes marriage. Early in the story as she is running away from an orphanage she is picked up by truck driver Big Joe Munroe, and he quickly tells her that he really goes for her . . . but he doesn't want to jump her bones . . . he wants to introduce her to his sister so that sis can get her a job and look after her . . . But don't worry, beneath all the fatherly care for her, he is the first man in our movie to propose marriage to her. This is 1944, and World War II is in full swing, and the women of America are going to work instead of being barefoot and pregnant in the little home, and Lily is conflicted by her desire to have a career as a singer and the pressures of society to find a good man and settle down, and it doesn't help that every man she meets proposes to her. I'm betting that producer Alfred Stern probably had similar feelings for Lily . . . or Mary Beth Hughes . . . wanting to protect her, and care for her, and see that she wanted for nothing, just like the attitude of every male in this story. Her sad eyes aside, this blonde has it, whatever it is, and sadly, I am probably the only fellow around who wouldn't propose to the beautiful blonde constipated crooner . . . I must be nuts or something. But for the rest of you, pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
