When he finds out his boss is retiring to Arizona, a sailor has to find a way to buy the Westwind, a boat that he and his father built. He is also caught between two women: insensitive club singer Robin and sweet Laurel.
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!
The "turk-ican" baby at the end of the movie is a white turkey chick with a fake beak glued on. See more »
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 »
The love affair between Pat Boone as Lieutenant Donald and Barbara Eden as Sally Hobson makes up the basic story line in this fun movie. Buddy Hacket or is it "hatchet" as Garfield acts as a crazy (and I do mean crazy) indian to add the comedy. The fast moving plot includes the antics of Garfield and a pet turkey which they are trying to hide from Lieutenant Donalds superiors. The main plot, the love affair and attempts to smuggle Sally Hobson on board with the ensuing coverup and confusion make for an extremely funny movie. Barbara Eden's excellant acting and Pat Boones singing and acting are prime ingredients in this very fine enjoyable production.
