Summary
  • Operation mad ball: A terminally bored Army private wages a war of wits as he tries to throw a party under the nose of his obnoxious commanding officer
  • Good neighbor Sam: In this delightfully daffy comedy romp, Jack plays a very married ad man who poses as the husband of a sexy single girl to help her land a big inheritance
  • The notorious landlady: William Gridley, an American diplomat in London, gets mixed up with his beautiful landlady, Carlye Hardwick. Gridley discovers that she is suspected of murdering her husband and fears he may be next although he has fallen in love with her
  • Three for the show: Julie becomes a widow after her husband is killed in action. Shortly after she remarries, but soon finds out her first husband is still alive
