Unknown Ronald Reagan WW II Movie

Greetings:

 

I remember seeing a movie a few years ago, in black and white, starring Ronald Reagan, about some wounded soldiers in a South Pacific hospital.

 

They are all being sent home, except for a Scottish soldier, who hasn't been told that he's dying.

 

Ronald Reagan and the other guys pool their money to buy a kilt for the Scottish soldier, trying to cheer him up, but he is full of resentment and hostility.

 

Does anyone remember the title of this movie?

 

I wonder if TCM would show it, or was it on TCM that I saw it?

 

Thank you.

Patful:

 

Moran taing!

(That's Scottish Gaelic for "Many thanks!")

 

I'll add my suggestion along with yours.

 

I did not know until now that the movie was remade, as a television special, in 1983, starring Cheryl Ladd.

 

Tapadh leibh agus slainte mhath!

("Thank you and good health!")
