Plot Summary

In 1941, Dr. Robert Sunday (John Hodiak) criticizes his friend, successful surgeon Ulysses Johnson (Clark Gable), for his hypocritical stance on war victims while neglecting needy, poor patients at home. When Ulysses joins the Army, his wife, Penny (Anne Baxter), worries about the war's effects on him and their marriage. On the voyage across, Ulysses meets nurse and widow Jane "Snapshot" McCall (Lana Turner), whose idealism, strength and skill prompt him to reevaluate his principles.
