Operation Petticoat (Blu-Ray+DVD)

Operation Petticoat Eureka Masters of Cinema

Cary Grant (North by Northwest) 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) Academy Award-nominated Operation Petticoat.

When Adm. Matt Sherman's submarine, the Sea Tiger, is damaged during the attack on Pearl Harbor, he needs to find spare parts to have it recommissioned. Into the breach steps aide Lt. Nick Holden, a master con man and wheeler-dealer who begins scheming to acquire the materials needed to fix the sub while the appalled Sherman looks the other way. Once the sub is deemed seaworthy, they stop at an island where Holden picks up a couple of Filipino families and five navy nurses who have been stranded there. The arrival of the extremely attractive nurses in the sub's cramped quarters has the predicted effect on the young, all-male crew, who soon find concentrating on their work to be an impossible task. The women also have their own ideas about the renovation of the submarine, one of which involves painting it pink.

Also starring Joan O Brien (The Alamo), Dina Merrill (The Sundowners), Gene Evans (Hell and High Water) and Dick Sargent (TV s Bewitched), Eureka Classics presents one of Blake Edwards most beloved comedies on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition.
