Description by OLDIES.com:
Quitting his bank job of fifteen years to open a fix-it shop, Wilbert Winkle (Edward G. Robinson) begins questioning his choice after his wife, Amy (Ruth Warrick), starts nagging him. Though surprised to receive a draft notice, the middle-aged Wilbert responds. And after ending up in the South Pacific where his wits and courage make him a most unlikely hero, the unassuming Winkle heads back home content to resume life where he left off. Newly remastered.
A henpecked, and seemingly weakwilled husband is accepted into the army where he demonstrates a level of courage and competence which is a shock to everyone who knows him. From an engagement with the enemy, he emerges as a hero.
