Newly remastered in HD and on Blu-ray™ for the First Time!




Chicago, IL – Olive Films releases one of the funniest films of the ‘50s, Operation Petticoat on Blu-ray™ and DVD July 1st.  Directed by Blake Edwards (Pink PantherVictor Victoria) and released in 1959, screen legends Cary Grant (Father Goose) and Tony Curtis (Some Like It Hot) ship out for laughs and adventure in one of the most hilarious naval comedies to ever hit the high seas. Enjoy the screwiest of screwball comedies as the crew of the U.S.S. Sea Tiger scavenge for parts and supplies they need to keep their wacked-out submarine afloat! Operation Petticoat was a huge box office success and one of the top grossing films of 1960.




Operation Petticoat begins as Commander Matt Sherman (Grant) has his toughest assignment yet - to put a broken sardine can of a submarine back in action. Enter supply officer Nick Holden (Curtis), a master scavenger who has some very shady plans to get the Sea Tiger purring again. But after rescuing five stranded beautiful nurses, the grey, battle-scarred sub is suddenly painted a blushingly bold pink – becoming a party-ready hot tub sub for all that come aboard. Leaving Sherman and his men to sink, swim or surrender to the fun!



The two legendary leads are joined by an all-star supporting cast that includes Joan O’Brien, Dina Merrill, Gene Evans, Dick Sargent, Arthur O’Connell, Gavin MacLeod, Madlyn Rhue and Marion Ross. Directed by Edwards, Operation Petticoat was photographed by Russell Harlan (Rio BravoRed River) and looks better (and pinker) than ever on this new release. The classic comedy received a 1959 Academy Award® nomination for Best Writing (Story and Screenplay written directly for the screen) and over 50 years later this wild comedy still packs plenty of laughs into one tiny pink submarine!
