Trivia

"McHale's Navy's" PT 73 was a British-designed 70-foot Vosper MTB (Motor Torpedo Boat) built under license in the U.S. for export to Russia. World War II ended before the boat could be sent to the Soviet Union. The boat was used for shots of PT 73 underway at sea, while a full-scale mock-up was used for studio scenes. The real PT 73 in WWII was a 78-foot Higgins PT boat, assigned to the U.S. Navy's MTB Squadron 13, and was placed in service on August 12, 1942. PT 73 was destroyed to prevent capture after running aground while delivering supplies to guerrillas near Lubang Island in the Philippines, on January 15, 1945. See more »

Goofs

During the opening credits, a helicopter fly-by shot zooms in on the PT-73, showing McHale and a seaman (in blue shirt and white sailor hat) at the helm. In the next shot, as the PT-73 pulls up to an island dock, McHale and Ensign Parker are at the helm. See more »

A Little Side Note
30 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I do enjoy this movie.. It's silly and far better than the remake that was made in the 1990's. Think I've seen this 50 times or more... When I was a child, the movie and show were on constantly in syndication.. Back in the day of this being made, it was very popular to make comedy war movies, like this one and "Operation Peticoat"... Recently just seeing this movie again on AMC, I was stunned to find out that Bob Hope was actually offered the title role for this, but refused it... You would have thought that he would have taken it on being that he basically accepted so many movie parts to keep his name in circulation.. *LOL*
