Donna Reed found a new way to "kiss and make up"

August 22, 1946, MGM releases "Faithful in My Fashion" starring Donna Reed and Tom Drake

Jeff (Tom Drake) arrives home to New York City after being away in the Navy for several years. Unaware that his fiancée, Jean (Donna Reed), is now dating a man (Warner Anderson) at the department store where she works, Jeff assumes she still intends to marry him. In order to save Jeff from heartache, several employees at Jean's store set up a ruse to keep Jeff unaware of Jean's new man until he is deployed again. Jean cooperates with the ruse, but it isn't long before secrets get revealed.

According to MGM records the movie was not a hit, earning $486,000 in the US and Canada and $140,000 elsewhere, making a loss to the studio of $307,000.
