Trailers from Hell: Sam Hamm on Preston Sturges' Defiant Romp 'The Miracle of Morgan's Creek'

This week at Trailers from Hell, Sam Hamm discusses Preston Sturges’ final film for Paramount, “The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek.”

A wild night on the town with departing soldiers leaves small town girl Trudy Kockenlocker with child–but she can’t remember who the father is, so the lovestruck schnook Norval Jones is recruited to protect her honor. Although it was Paramount’s biggest hit of 1944 (after being held on the shelf for a year), Preston Sturges’ defiantly pre-code-style romp was his final film for the studio and the end of his unprecedented streak of auteurist comedy classics.
