George Walsh sent his brother, Raoul, numerous letters that consisted of stories with one common element, a love story. Each wrapped around the love of a man for a woman or a man fighting the odds to fight the good fight while still knowing a woman stood waiting for him. If the scenario didn't include a good love story somewhere in the plot, Walsh was not interested. He directed Revolt of Mamie Stover, The King and Four Queens, and Band of Angels. Walsh then worked up great enthusiasm for his next film, The Naked and the Dead, adapted from Norman Mailer's best-selling antiwar novel about World War II. Twenty years previously to A Private's Affair, Walsh's comedies could not have been compared to television products, but now they might very well have been. To make matters worse, Walsh lost good friends in the 1950s. Bogie and Errol Flynn passed away in 1957 and 1959, respectively. But his adventures were nowhere near finished; he had a store of sadness he needed to escape.
