Brandon De Wilde,
Story of a Navy ship with a captain obsessed with catching a fish, a singing executive officer wanting to get married, and an Indian with a turkey as a pet. A few laughs with Pat Boone as the hopeful suitor, Barbara Eden as his girl, and Buddy Hackett assigned to Boone to stay out of the captain`s way. Certainly not a Mister Rogers competitor!
I saw this movie in my childhood and still remember some of the most funniest scenes till date!
One of the most memorable scenes in the movie is when Lt. Cmdr. O'Hara is fishing with Garfield but on separate decks-Seeing the Lt.Cmdr. frustrated by not having caught any fish, Garfiled quickly releases his "healthy" catch into the sea with an expression of displeasure on his face relating to what he considers an "unworthy" catch! This infuriates the Lt.Cmdr. even more and he commands his subordinates saying-"Full Fish ahead"(meaning full speed ahead but replacing the word speed with fish as fishing was all that currently occupied his mind! Moreover, the thought of Garfield-considered by the Lt.Cmdr as an unworthy seaman, having caught a bigger catch(or for that matter caught a catch at the least!) was a fact that the Lt.Cmdr. could not digest!)
