To pacify 104 sex-starved male soldiers building an Arctic radar base, Army psychologist Vicki Loren suggests choosing one by lot to have a "perfect furlough" as selected by the men: three weeks in Paris with their favorite pin-up queen, Sandra Roca. Since "winner" Paul Hodges is a tireless Don Juan, and this is a fifties comedy, Vicki is ordered to keep Paul and Sandra out of bed. But who will guard the guardian? Written by

Lieutenant. As a psychologist to a patient, what's wrong with me?
Lt. Vicki Loren:
Well, I don't know you well enough to say.
Well, I do know there's something wrong with me. For an example, here I am a grown man and I still like women.
Lt. Vicki Hodges:
There's absolutely nothing abnormal about a man liking women, Corporal. But there is a limit.
What do you do after you catch the limit? You throw the next one back?

Another let-down for Tony Curtis fans. Here, he's an Army Corporal stationed at an Arctic outpost who gets a Parisian furlough with sexy Argentine movie actress Linda Cristal, who is secretly pregnant. Would-be bedroom romp never does get saucy. Director Blake Edwards bides his time with his usual padding and gimmicks: slapstick brawls and frantic chases. This was one of six movies Curtis made with then-wife Janet Leigh, wasted here as a prim Lieutenant. Despite lots of Hollywood gloss, these are grueling comic antics indeed, not helped by an interesting supporting cast which includes Elaine Stritch and Keenan Wynn. * from ****
