Movie Info

Based on the play Something About a Sailor by Earle Couttie, this film is a screwball comedy about the British navy. Kenneth Connor is Officer Blissworth, who is an inept bungler of a sailor. With an equally inadequate partner, Captain David Foster (Eric Barker), he loses the plans for modifying an important torpedo during the testing of a prototype for the revised model. They try to cover up their mistake by giving a set of plans to Admiral Sir Humphrey Pettigrew (Noel Purcell) that detail their ship's refrigeration system. The scheme works for awhile, but then the bumblers discover that a female inspector is scheduled to do the testing of the torpedo. ~ Michael Betzold, Rovi
