Mildly piquant, mildly funny
7 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

For its time (1959, film censorship was still quite strong), "Operation Bullshine" is a fairly piquant comedy; it certainly anticipates the bolder sex farces of the 1960s, and even contains some discreet almost-nudity. The Technicolor cinematography is colorful, and the new Region 2 DVD transfer is quite pleasing to the eye. Unfortunately, the film does not have enough big laughs; only a sequence near the end, where all the men and women of the unit must prepare in record time for an upcoming inspection, has a real comic rhythm. There is not much story, either; the film is basically a series of episodes. Painless but not very memorable. ** out of 4.
