I Love a Soldier

I Love a Soldier

Movie: I Love a Soldier
Director: Mark Sandrich
Produced by: Paramount
Released By: Paramount
MPAA Rating:

Paulette Goddard and Sonny Tufts, two of the stars of director Mark Sandrich’s wartime morale-booster So Proudly We Hail, were reunited in Sandrich’s I Love a Soldiers. Looking gorgeous in bib overalls, Goddard plays defense-plant welder Eva Morgan, who avoids romance but gives generously of her time at the local GI canteen. One evening, soldier Dan Kilgore saunters into the canteen, Eva takes one look at the handsome hunk, and it’s love at first sight, despite her vow to steer clear of romantic entanglements. Upon learning that Dan is already married, however, Eva bitterly breaks off the relationship. She is drawn back to him when he insists he’s about to get a divorce, but renounces him again-not because she doesn’t believe his divorce story, but because she feels that he’d be more valuable on the battlefield if he could only get his mind off women. Boy, is this a period piece! Outside of its stars, I Love a Soldier affords excellent acting opportunities for a number of character actresses, especially Mary Treen in a role specifically written for her.
