Operation Petticoat
  • Description

    Cary Grant (Father Goose) and Tony Curtis (Some Like It Hot), two of cinema's most celebrated stars, provide the comedic pivot point in director Blake Edwards' (The Pink Panther) Operation Petticoat. It's hijinks on the high seas when revered Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman (Grant) and the somewhat unethical Lt. JG Nicholas Holden (Curtis) team to upright the USS Sea Tiger, a flagging submarine that's seen better days. With some dubious maneuvering (and scavenged parts), things begin to look up for the old war horse until the ship and it's crew are forced out to sea by a surprise attack. Limping along and barely held together with it's borrowed parts, the Sea Tiger gets some unexpected company when five stranded Army nurses are brought aboard. The game gals will prove that necessity is indeed the mother of invention, initiating a series of renovations to make life aboard the Sea Tiger livable - with the exception of the sub's accidental pink paint job. Not only is the ship now an eyesore, but a target for both the Japanese and American forces. Adding to the fun, both fore and aft, are a talented cast of supporting players that include Joan O'Brien (The Alamo), Dina Merrill (The Sundowners), Gene Evans (Shock Corridor), Dick Sargent (TV's Bewitched), Arthur O'Connell (April Love), Gavin MacLeod (TV's The Love Boat), Madlyn Rhue (A Majority of One) and Marion Ross (TV's Happy Days). Operation Petticoat's Academy Award® nominated screenplay was written for the screen by Stanley Shapiro and Maurice Richlin (suggested by a story by Paul King and Joseph Stone) and photographed by the great Russell Harlan (Red River, Rio Bravo).
