Description by OLDIES.com:
After four long years apart, there are so many things returning World War II soldier John Lawrence wants to tell his sweetheart, Mary McKinley. That he loves her. That he's missed her. That he's married. No wait, honey, there's an innocent explanation!
Ronald Reagan is John and film-debuting Patricia Neal is Mary in a tale of a G.I. whose good deed - marrying his buddy's British girl so she can come to America - turns out to be a bad idea when he discovers the buddy has already tied the knot with someone else! Based on Norman Krasna's hit Broadway play, John Loves Mary is an airy, witty farce, a wedding cake of comedy and romance.
Ronald Reagan plays John, a G.I. who is eagerly awaited by Mary back home in the States. In his place comes Fred, John's war buddy, who explains that John has married an English girl named Lily, but only to help her come to the United States where they will get a divorce so Lily can marry Fred. This screwball comedy is based on a hit Broadway play by Norman Krasna.
