Mr. Winkle Goes to War

Mr. Winkle Goes to War is a 1944 war comedy film starring Edward G. Robinson and Ruth Warrick, based on a novel by Theodore Pratt.

Plot

On June 1, 1942, after fourteen years working in a bank, mild-mannered 44-year-old Wilbert G. Winkle (Edward G. Robinson) suddenly quits his boring bank job to follow his dream, to open a repair shop. Everyone is shocked, particularly his status-conscious wife Amy (Ruth Warrick), who demands he choose between her and his new career. The only exception is Barry (Ted Donaldson), a young orphan Mr. Winkle has befriended.
