As a loveable, timid stoker engaged to foil the plans of a gang of mutinous Wrens, the diminutive comic finds himself caught up in a maritime battle of the sexes in a classic British feature from 1961 - presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
A company of Wrens led by spirited Chief Officer Anne Stevens set out to prove equality with their male counterparts by taking over a warship with breathtaking efficiency, sailing it out to sea and into a NATO naval exercise. However, the renegade Wrens are soon to discover that men really are essential in many ways... while Charlie is all at sea for the first time in his humble career with Her Majesty's Navy!

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
