sturges directs

Preston Sturges on the set of The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek in 1942. The film’s release was held up for two years.

In this unused publicity still, Trudy imagines herself “in the situation.”

Betty Hutton, Bill Demarest (why he didn’t get an Academy Award or at least a nomination for this one–or Conquering Hero–is anyone’s guess) and Diana Lynn.

“Little river needs big dam.” McGinty and The Boss.

Sturges, Betty Hutton, Eddie Bracken

  1. Love this flick! I need to go back to it again. I have a kooky song by Betty Hutton that I grabbed off of WFMU. Never connected that she was the star of this film til reading your post.
