The Air Force Combat Crew, Sinful Cynthia, and the Girl From Walla Walla
He held a loaded pistol to his wife’s head. He was screaming in fear, with a far-away look in his eyes. He was a war hero from World War Two, with severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, before there was a name for his illness, or any treatment for it.
But I am getting ahead of myself. This motion picture is a classic Romantic Comedy, full of jest, merriment, chaotic humor, and sweet, tender love. But the setting of the story, and the back-story of the leading lady, are both filled with memories of war.
At the age of nineteen, combat soldier Audie Murphy held an entire company of enemy soldiers from advancing for more than an hour. By the end of World War Two, he was the most decorated American soldier of the war.
After the war, Audie Murphy wanted to become a movie actor. He saw a magazine cover photo of actress Wanda Hendrix and was instantly in love. His acting mentor and friend James Cagney arranged for them to meet. They began dating, and wanted to get married, but Murphy’s parents made them both promise to date for a full two years before tying the knot.
On February 8, 1949, after two years of courtship, they were married. It was then, when they were together day and night, that she experienced Murphy’s terror filled moments of vivid war memories. Fourteen months later, just before beginning to work on this movie, their divorce was final. Wanda was very sympathetic to Audie Murphy’s problems but was unable to endure his terror filled episodes.
In this comic adventure, twenty-one-year-old Wanda Hendrix is Jean Madison, a twenty-two-year-old girl who worked for the Navy during the war. Edmond O’Brien and three of his buddies were an Air Force combat crew dropping bombs during the war. Now the war is over, and it is time for some fun, adventure, and yes, romance. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
