By Raymond Sanguinetti - Published on
A patriotic story of a underachiever who goes to war and makes a name for himself dispite his family and friend's expectations. Edward G. shows his acting abiltiy here for the first time since broadway. A masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Period Piece 22 Feb 2001

I'll never get tired of watching this. WWII, the home front, quitting his job at the bank, opening up a fix-it shop, disapproval from the missus, induction, training, furlough, hooking up with some babes, shipping out to combat, coming home a hero, reconciliation with his wife---and all from the perspective of a guy who could've left the Army anytime because of his age (40+). How sweet it was! Not to be missed is Dick Haymes, Jack Armstrong, Dick Lane, & EGR's performance of "Sweet Genevieve" at the canteen.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Movie Affected Me More Than I Give It Credit For 21 May 2005
By D. R Hayes - Published on
I remember watching this back in 1987, and it really didn't hit me too much back then as I was only 19 at the time. However, now nearing 38 I can certainly appreciate the movie alot more. It stars Edward G. Robinson as Mr. Winkle who is an accountant, but secretly longs for alot more than doing accounting, but his wife doesn't even want him thinking of doing anything she would consider foolheartdly. WW2 begins, and Winkle volunteers for the Army, and halfway through basic his sergant calls him out to let him know he's been reassigned to a desk job which crushes Mr. Winkle, and to the point of begging the Sergant at a night club to reconsider, and Mr. Winkle gets arrested. However, some good did come out of it, and Mr. Winkle gets to tell his desire to work in a motorpool, and work with his hands, and being a soldier. The sergant while not necessarily understanding why, he understood what it would mean to Winkle, so he gives him a chance, and Winkle is happy, but during a exercise with a tank Winkle is injured, and has to be hospitalized all to the displeasure of his wife. It took a little boy that Winkle adopted to make Winkle's wife understand that this is what Winkle wanted even though he was in his 40's. I say "More Power To You Mr. Winkle." I'm currently enrolled back in school to work on a degree that I had to put aside 11 years ago, and I want to see it through. I have age, my own family, and my own fears working against me, but I'm not giving up. I know if my wife were alive today she would be like "Why do it now?" "You should've had this all done in your 20's." I use my grandfather as my role model; he was an alcoholic up till he was 40, and then he quit cold turkey because he wanted to learn how to drive a car. There's no such thing as too late as long as you're breathing.
4.0 out of 5 stars Very unexpected of Robinson 24 Feb 2014

This is a patriotic tale of an unassuming middle-aged man who decides to quit his job at the bank, and start a fix-it shop at home. His wife (Ruth Warrick of CITIZEN KANE and "All My Children" fame), is an overbearing wife who berates him for doing this. To her he is a fool. Winkle decides to do his duty and join the Army, only to do construction in the war zone. His wife sees what a man her husband really is, when he comes back from war a hero, and is no longer a doormat. She finds she likes him that way.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent WWII Basic Training Story 8 Oct 2013

Excellent story (fictional) ... A glimpse into what a bored house husband was like in 1940. Also very cool basic training stuff.
