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

This is the fourth of five films husband and wife Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh starred in. In chronological order, they are as follows: Houdini (1953), The Black Shield of Falworth (1954), The Vikings (1958), The Perfect Furlough (1958), and Who Was That Lady? (1960). See more »

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. Interesting supporting cast, which includes Elaine Stritch and Keenan Wynn, is a minor compensation. * from ****
