Description by OLDIES.com:
They also serve who only sit and type! Hollywood brought audiences to atten-hut! in the 1950s and '60s with a string of military comedies like Mr. Roberts
, Operation Petticoat
, Ensign Pulver
, No Time for Sergeants
and this splash into the typing pool of dry-land sailors - a Navy publicity team in the World War II Pacific.
Glenn Ford, who appeared in a fistful of the era's service comedies, stars as a lieutenant with a knack for PR activities like placating big shots, calming romantic waters, deflating puffed-up journalists and puffing a profane-mouthed gob into the public's idea of the perfect enlisted man.
This robust comedy is filled with sharp lines and characterizations as a unit of naval publicity men busily sell the world on the Navy, but never go near the water.
