Because of You

Synopsis: Blonde 'doll' Christine Carroll finds too late that her fiancée Mike is a gangster and she's his unwitting accessory. Emerging from prison with dark hair and an interest in nursing, she becomes a nurse's aide in a war hospital where her good looks quickly arouse the interest of battle-fatigued, 'melancholic' patient Steve Kimberly. When it's clear that Steve has fallen hard, she faces the dilemma of what and when to tell him. Her decision has melodramatic consequences...

Was that good now, Major?

- It's wonderful.

I've got another name besides "Major".

"Steve". I know.

Only I'm not supposed to do that either.


Haven't you got any woman of

your own who can do this for you?

Yeah .. a twin sister.

- Oh.

No resemblance. So lucky for her.

Pretty busy right now.

- Doing what?

Taking care of twins.


Brand new.

- Uhuh.

She'll be up to see me soon.

Up from where?


- Oh.

Will you be going back there when

you get your disability discharge?


When you leave here, are you

going back to Philadelphia?

I'm not getting any

disability discharge.

You ought to know. Am I?

What did they tell you?

I'll finish what I started. Anyone wants

to take me out of a plane, they'll die.

Look Major, there are lots of men here

who would like to finish the war ..

I don't care about them.

Just about me.

I'm not through, I tell you.

Ah, pipe down, Kimberly.

Please Major. Relax.


There. That's better.

So I thought perhaps you could

straighten me out on him, Dr Breen.

Well, Major Kimberly's wounds,

his physical wounds ..

Have healed a lot more quickly

than his emotional ones.

He's had battle experiences that relate

to painful memories in his childhood.

Losing people dear to him.

He saw both his parents

die in a ship's fire.

And then again during the war,

so many of his friends ..

As a result, he suffers

a deep melancholy.


- Uhuh.

He doesn't show it.

- No.

That's what's so hard on him.

He's like an orphan who puts on a big

smile so you won't feel sorry for him.

He comes from a wealthy

family, you know.

Yes, Philadelphia.

No need to work really.

Nothing to rely on.

Everybody he ever

loved, he says, left him.

He's very precariously

balanced right now.

He's in danger of emotional
