Waterloo Road ★★★½

After receiving a letter from his sister telling him that his wife, Joy Shelton, is seeing other men, Private John Mills goes AWOL to learn the truth. He spends a day searching for his wife and her friend, Stewart Granger, and avoiding the army police who are hunting for him. At the end of the day Mills confronts Shelton and Granger and learns the truth.

This comedy film features John Mills, a personable, multitalented actor, and Stewart Granger, exchanging his usual heroics for a role as a scheming low-life. Mills and Granger have an impressive knock-down fight at the conclusion, rather a surprising event for Mills who usually played less aggressive characters.
