4.0 out of 5 stars Preston Sturges at his finest 21 Sep 2006
Format:DVD
.Preston Sturges' best film.Town wacko Trudy Kockenlocker(Betty Hutton) goes to an all night party,gets pregnant but can,t remember who the father is.Comic escapades ensue as her sweetheart Norval Jones (Eddie Bracken) tries to do right by her while at the same time keeping quiet and in the good graces of her father played by the wonderful William Demarest.Very controversial subject matter (for the time) is played to the hilt by all concerned. Brian Donlevy has a fun "cameo" as the governor and the checking in scene at the motel is absolutely hilarious. The casting of the eccentric Betty Hutton could have blown up in Sturges' face but she is wonderous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant film.... why can't I buy it? 3 Jan 2009
Format:DVD
Interesting to read a review of this film by someone who can't remember it. I remember it very clearly indeed--the last fifteen minutes is possibly the funniest sequence ever committed to film!!
Why isn't a Region 2 version of this masterpiece available?

5.0 out of 5 stars Surely the greatest comedy ever .... 15 May 2008
Format:DVD
Up there with Some Like It Hot.

Very overlooked and forgotten now, but this is a priceless gem. Daring subject matter for the 40s which is probably why this film seems fresh and undated. Watch this - you will laugh, and cry, and laugh again. They must bring this out to buy on DVD soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 1 Feb 2012
Format:DVD
Preston Sturges' 1943 comedy THE MIRACLE OF MORGAN'S CREEK makes most modern film comedies look feeble by comparison. It's the farcical story of how Betty Hutton spends a night out with a soldier and wakes up next day married but can't remember a thing about it. Then finds she's pregnant. How she copes with the news, with the help of her hapless and long-standing boyfriend Eddie Bracken, makes for a high-speed joyously exuberant film. Sturges' direction is brilliant. He's wonderful at handling crowd scenes and packing the frame with people. The pace of the film is exhausting. There's a very witty script, lots of gags and great performances from Hutton and Bracken whose energetic personalities are absolutely right for the farcical material. What the 'miracle' of the title is it would be churlish to reveal. See the film and find out. I can imagine that this film would have been a very welcome diversion in the midst of the War. Recommended.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a present for my brother who is a dvd collector so was dissapointed with the cover looked very cheaply made and had japanese writing on it apart from that the actual dvd was fine once the subtitles were turned off

After I ordered it found I already had it. Fans of Hutton born in the thirties will like it. I don't like Eddie Bracken however.
