      Howard Hawks directed with great success this 1949 war comedy, I Was a Male War Bride. This is a twist on the war film that hadn’t been done before that I know of, and it was a real winner.

      The movie opens with two people meeting and not liking each


      other. Captain Henri Rochard of the French Army has a strong dislike for American Lieutenant Catherine Gates. They argue and spar until they suddenly realize that it’s not hate they feel, but a very deep love. As a result, they get married.

      The fun happens when Rochard is released from ...


      • his duty, but Gates is still enlisted. When her unit gets recalled back to America, the couple has only option to stay together, and that is to have Rochard travel as the married spouse of an enlisted person. Normally, it’s wives traveling with their husbands, and that is what makes this
        so hysterical.

        The stars of I Was a Male War Bride are Cary Grant and Ann Sheridan, both of whom show spunk and heart in their portrayals. They are engaging to watch, whether they are fighting or romancing each other.

        There’s a lot of humor and fun in I Was a Male War Bride.
