ACF Masters #12: The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek

 

One time during the war years, Preston Sturges proposed a solution to the war problems: A baby boom. Mussolini simply gave up–Hitler demanded a recount–American fertility was simply unbelievable! So Zena Hitz and I talk about it, our fifth and last Sturges conversation. Miracle Of Morgan’s Creek is a small town comedy, but it also has a sentimental side–it pokes fun at heartland America and then shows the loving heart of America–it shows what our conventional ideas get wrong, but also how they try to help nature along, as well as where nature rebels against convention… There’s much farce, but every bit of it is also a reflection on who we really are as human beings, including some of the darkness in us. In short, what we call as classic.
