On honeymoon with his new bride, Susan, Mexican-born police officer Mike Vargas agrees to investigate a car bombing. In so doing, he incurs the wrath of local police chief Hank Quinlan, a corrupt, bullying behemoth with a perfect arrest record.

Determined to get Vargas out of his hair, Quinlan makes a deal with local crime boss Uncle Joe Grandi to frame Susan on a drug rap.

She outwits him by getting nerdy Norval Jones--who's had a crush on Trudy since they were teenagers--to take her to the movies, so she can slip out to the dance. The soldiers spike the lemonade and Trudy dances with a number of GIs. During one boogie-woogie number, Trudy's energetic partner tosses her in the air, and she bangs her head on a chandelier, rendering her unconscious. When she wakes up, she discovers that she's wearing a wedding ring, and, a few weeks later, that she's pregnant. But who and where is the husband and father? Confiding only in her younger-but-wiser, wisecracking sister Emmy, she plans to get Norval to marry her. Norval is 4-F because of his extremely nervous condition, but he desires only two things in life: Trudy and to be in the army. Norval's willing to do anything to help her, but whatever Trudy asks him to do only makes things worse!

Alphaville by Jean-Luc Godard( Visual )

56 editions published between 1965 and 2019 in 7 languages and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this amalgam of sci-fi comic strip and film noir, tough American intergalactic secret agent, Lemmy Caution, goes on a mission to discover the fate of his predecessor in computer-run Alphaville, which recreates the legend of Orpheus and Euridyce (see Cocteau's Orphee). Coutard's photography of nocturnal Paris, 1965, creates Godard's sci-fi dystopia. Long bureaucratic corridors are Kafkaesque labyrinths of power at the centre of which lies death. The film is built on contrasts - between straight lines and circles, Max Steiner-like romanticism and discordant noise, between the super ego (Alpha 60) and the suppressed id (Lemmy). Lemmy is a reference to the popular arts where human qualities linger in a dehumanised world. Lemmy finds himself in a dictatorial computer-run society dedicated to technology where love and poetry are banned
