Hey, My Bag's On That Train!

It is 1946, World War Two is finished, and it is time for fun, romance and comedy. But in 1946 America is vastly different than it was before the war when it comes to men, women, and the relationships between them.

During the war, with most of the men out of the country fighting, American women stepped up to the challenge of working on the jobs and responsibilities of the absent men. When the war ended, many of the gals enjoyed this new way of life, and were reluctant to return to their domestic life as a housewife and mother. These girls had a taste of the business world, and for many the life of a sweet, home-bound wife was gone forever . . . almost.

You will recognize the familiar storyline, but this one is different enough from the norm that you will enjoy and be surprised at some of the plot twists. Here are the characters, and you can just imagine how their lives will intertwine in this romantic comedy.

First there is Pat Brown Morgan, wife of Steve Morgan, who has been off to war. While Steve is off to war, Pat has been running his advertising business, and doing quite well. There is another gal at the advertising agency that wanted and still wants Steve, but Pat married Steve, and that is that . . . maybe. Mark Townley is man-about-town owner of large cigarette company, and Pat wants to get his business for the agency. Pat knows that Mark is a wolf, and will put the moves on her, but she is sure that she is smart enough to keep him away from her until she has a signed contract. So she takes off her wedding band and pretends to be single, to lure Mark into signing a contract with the ad agency. But just as Pat is about to meet Mark and try to get his business, her hubby Steve returns home from the war, and discovers that Pat is on a lunch date with the ladies’ man Mark.

Now before this movie is over, Steve and his wife Pat will be teamed with other partners, and Vera the other ad agency gal will almost get Steve for herself as she tries to help split up the couple. And Mark Townley, the cigarette man who needs an ad agency will get Sugar Lee into this menagerie. Sugar Lee is a burlesque star, and they will be thrown together with hubby Steve while Pat is pretending to be single in order to get Townley's contract.

Now you know that before this one ends happily ever after, there will be many scenes that would be scandalous and unbelievable in the pre-war America, but now, in this new post-war age, we are presented with new and complicated situations that just might be more real than just a Hollywood script. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn drizzled with plenty of warm melted butter and enjoy the show.
