Directed by Blake Edwards, Operation Petticoat moves from one hilarious situation to the next. With the USS Tiger in it's last legs, Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman (Grant) and his junior officer (Tony Curtis) scavenge the parts and supplies needed to put the sub back into action. The sub leaks and limps along until five stranded army nurses come aboard and take over its renovation... and the sub ends up a blushing pink! Grant and Curtis keep the laughs afloat in one of the funniest voyages ever to grace the high seas.
