The Admiral Was A Lady (1950)

Edmond O'Brien, Wanda Hendrix
Albert S. Rogell
Comedy, Romance
In this laugh-a-minute, post-World War II comedy, Wanda Hendrix (Prince of Foxes) stars as Jean Madison, a former WAVE (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service) ensign taken under the wings of a rowdy group of former airmen, who affectionately dub her the “Admiral.” Handily directed by veteran filmmaker Albert S. Rogell (Li’l Abner), the film is bolstered by the crackling chemistry between Hendrix and her co-star, Oscar winner Edmond O’Brien (The Barefoot Contessa). (BW)
