A Miracle Cure For a Code

In "Morgan's Creek" Betty's a virgin
But just till some ill-advised mergin'.
The censors, I'll bet
Most deeply regret
They stood by and let Preston Sturge in.

Betty Hutton and Eddie Bracken star in the Code-defying The Miracle of Morgan's Creek (1944), written and directed by Preston Sturges. Hutton spends a wild night on the town, marrying a soldier whose name and face she can't remember. And it gets wilder from there.
