To pacify 104 sex-starved male soldiers building an Arctic radar base, Army psychologist Vicki Loren suggests choosing one by lot to have a "perfect furlough" as selected by the men: three weeks in Paris with their favorite pin-up queen, Sandra Roca. Since "winner" Paul Hodges is a tireless Don Juan, and this is a fifties comedy, Vicki is ordered to keep Paul and Sandra out of bed. But who will guard the guardian?Written by

Upon Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh starring in their first film together, Houdini (1953), there was a controversy who would get top billing. Janet Leigh had more seniority, as she made her feature film debut in 1947, while Tony Curtis (who had played bit parts and extras) finally made his in 1951. However, Leigh said that she would take second billing to Curtis in any picture they made together. Hence the reason Curtis gets billing over Leigh in this film. See more »
When Lt. Loren falls into the grape crushing vat, she is shown submerged up to the top of her uniform, with some grape juice getting on her cap. When she sits up, she only has grape juice up about halfway on her sleeves, and nothing on her cap. When she returns to the hotel, her uniform is just spotty with grape juice, as if she had it spilled on her, and not as if she had been sitting in it. See more »
I'm a fan of Tony Curtis so obviously I am more inclined to like this movie than not. To be completely fair this movie is not his best effort and in fact it is probably one of the worst movies of this period of his acting career. That's not to say it's a bad movie because it is still a decent effort and a pretty good comedy with good performances and OK writing.
It is also worth watching this movie because it is one of the films he co-starred in with his real life wife Janet Leigh. In fact Jamie Lee Curtis was born around the time of this movie so that's an interesting piece of trivia for film buffs I guess.
All in all it's a pretty forgettable film and not one of the greats but if you can get your hands on a copy or catch it on TV it's definitely a decent way to get a few laughs and it's worth watching as a silly comedy that holds up pretty well after all these years.
