This was Clark Gable's first postwar MGM film. It was released in December 1945 with the tag line "Gable's back and Garson's got him," which annoyed Gable tremendously since he personally didn't like Greer Garson. Gable played a merchant marine who is rescued along with his buddies when their ship is torpedoed by a Japanese submarine. The men are finally deposited in San Francisco. Once in town, Gable encounters a straight-laced librarian played by Garson. She finds him annoying at first but he finds her interesting. Eventually they develop a relationship and fall in love and get married in Reno, Nevada, after which Gable's character disappears on her for a year in the merchant marine. Gable returns from South America to find out that his wife is giving birth to a baby girl and all ends well. The film was a box office success for MGM but Gable at this point was tired of the Hollywood scene.
