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!

There is a discrepancy with the release date of the movie and the ribbons on the ship. The movie came out in 1961, but there was a Vietnam Service Medal among the ribbons. The St. Clair County did not go to Vietnam until February 1966. Vietnam Service was not authorized until 1965. See more »
Buddy Hackett & others make this an hilarious show!
Having already read "Warm Bodies", I was prepared to find "All Hands on Deck" a funny movie. But, with the likes of Gale Gordon, Buddy Hackett, Dennis O'Keefe, Barbara Eden, and Pat Boone, I found it hilarious, with Buddy Hackett stealing the show! He makes a good Oklahoma Indian sailor and shows there is more to the Navy than goofy regulations and spit and polish. It is a very good general audience film, but it helps if you are (or were) an LST sailor.
