Operation Petticoat Movie Online
Operation Petticoat is a 1959 comedy film directed by Blake Edwards, and starring Cary Grant and Tony Curtis. It was the basis for a television series in 1977 starring John Astin in Grant's role. Other members of the cast include several actors who went on to become television stars in the 1960s and 1970s: Gavin MacLeod of The Love Boat and McHales Navy, Marion Ross of Happy Days, and Dick Sargent of Bewitched. The film tells, in flashback form, the misadventures of a fictional American submarine, the USS Sea Tiger, during the opening days of World War II with some elements of the screenplay taken from actual incidents. A Japanese air raid sinks the Sea Tiger while she is docked at the Cavite Navy Yard in the Philippines on 10 December 1941. Lieutenant Commander Sherman and his crew begin repairs, hoping to sail for Darwin, Australia, before the Japanese overrun the port. Believing there is no chance of repairing the Sea Tiger, the commodore of the squadron transfers most of Sherman's crew to other boats, but promises him that he will have first call on any available replacements. Lieutenant (junior grade) Nick Holden (Tony Curtis), an admirals aide, is reassigned to the Sea Tiger despite lacking any submarine training or experience. Holden became a naval officer not out of patriotism, but to escape poverty and find a wealthy spouse.
