"Gable's back and Garson's got him!" So went one of film's most famous ad lines, welcoming home the movie icon and World War II veteran to share an Adventure with glorious Greer Garson. As a rough-hewn merchant marine, Gable reprises his most popular film persona, the wisecracking man's man who loves 'em and leaves 'em – until the right dame comes along. Garson is the dame, or, in this case, lady – a librarian who finds nothing in the Dewey Decimal System about how to domesticate 6'1" of brawn and bravado. Victor Fleming directs, Joan Blondell plays a been-there blonde who catches Gable's eye and Thomas Mitchell adds pathos as a sailor who makes and breaks a deal with God.
