ashley h Pardon My Past is an excellent film. It is about an ex-GI wants to open a mink farm in Wisconsin but is mistaken for a look-alike, a gambler who owes a lot of money. Fred MacMurray and Marguerite Chapman give amazing performances. The screenplay is well written. Leslie Fenton did a great job directing this movie.
