I watched a movie years ago, and it had a line that stuck with me. Unfortunately, I don't recall the movie or the specific phrasing. I'd really love to track it down though. In the movie, one of the characters comments that he knew of some soldiers that were wounded years ago. Some even had bullets that had completely healed over, so as they walked around you would never know that they'd ever been wounded. But anytime a storm came up or the weather changed, they'd feel pain as though it were a fresh injury again. (Paraphrased) The line stuck in my mind because it works literally and as a metaphor. There have been instances of soldiers having wounds heal over, but they experience pain when the barometric pressure changed (1, 2, 3). Then there are soldiers who have not suffered from a physical injury, but they have mental scars that are hidden. Their pain can surface at times from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Shell Sock. If that's enough for anyone recognize the movie, please share. In the meantime, I wish everyone among the TCM message boards happy viewing and good health. United States. Surgeon-General's Office, George Alexander Otis. 1869.

I watched half of this movie (I loved it!) and try finding it for two month and found nothing. It was a movie about two military guys, possible navy, and they were on a ship and one of them pretend to be the other and was talking to a girl and the other one found out he was acting like him so he act like the other guy and when they finally meet her, the girl bought her friend along for the other guy and the other guy didn't like it cause he liked the other girl so he had an idea and pretend to drink mouth wash and act crazy and drunk, the date between the one girl and other guy who was pretending to be the other guy was ruin and the guy had to drag the other guy out. I think there was also a part where a guy was in the middle of the water and one of the salior or captain try to bring him on board but the guy was the enemy and he stab the salior or captain. I know this might confuse you but please I really want to know what movie this was.
