Wooden Nickel

Two of cinema's most celebrated stars Cary Grant and Tony Curtis provide the comedic pivot point in director Blake Ed wards' 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.
