Description
Flirtatious blonde Trudy Kockenlocker is disappointed that her father, gruff town constable Ed Kockenlocker, won't let her go to an army dance. She outwits him by getting nerdy Norval Jones--who's had a crush on Trudy since they were teenagers--to take her to the movies, so she can slip out to the dance. The soldiers spike the lemonade and Trudy dances with a number of GIs. During one boogie-woogie number, Trudy's energetic partner tosses her in the air, and she bangs her head on a chandelier, rendering her unconscious. When she wakes up, she discovers that she's wearing a wedding ring, and, a few weeks later, that she's pregnant. But who and where is the husband and father? Confiding only in her younger-but-wiser, wisecracking sister Emmy, she plans to get Norval to marry her. Norval is 4-F because of his extremely nervous condition, but he desires only two things in life: Trudy and to be in the army. Norval's willing to do anything to help her, but whatever Trudy asks him to do only makes things worse!
