Navy wife talks about hardest part of deployment
Navy Wife is a 1956 comedy film directed by Edward Bernds (who also directed "Three Stooges" and "Bowery Boys"), and starring Joan Bennett, Gary Merrill, Shirley Yamaguchi. The screenplay was written by Kay Lenard, based on the novel Mother Sir by Tats Blain. The film was produced by Walter Wanger, who was Bennett's husband in real life.
This movie takes place in post-war Japan, where Peg Blain (Bennett) and daughter Debby (Judy Nugent) join Peg's commanding-officer husband Jack (Merrill). After the local Japanese wives see how independent and self-reliant Peg and Debby are, they demand to have the same respect, rights and privileges as them. At a military Christmas party, the situation gets brought up and resolved.
