Storyline

In the spring of 1945, World War II is coming to a close. Roger Halyard, a dignified, strait-laced Englishmen, lives on a South Sea atoll with his three daughters, Gloria, Hester and Violet, along with the housekeeper, Thelma, who has raised the girls since childhood. Other than their father, the girls have never seen another man. Halyard is informed that 1500 U.S. Marines will soon arrive to establish an air base on the island. Halyard is rather apprehensive over the prospect of his daughters, who have never met another man, being thrown together with 1500 Marines who haven't seen a woman in months. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Where can I find this movie?
5 October 2008 | by aussiechk07See all my reviews

Where can I find this movie?? I grew up in Australia watching reruns of classic World War II and John Wayne movies on Sunday with my Dad. This particular film brings such great memories to me. Now that I have children I want to spend my Sunday's watching reruns of great old World War II movies with my children. Any advice on how to find it please let me know. I have checked all the usual places such as Amazon and Ebay. According to TMC it was never released on DVD so I am trying to track it down on VHS. (For all you fans please go to the TMC website and type in this movie and request it to be released on DVD by Home Videos.) If you have any suggestions please let me know.
