Petticoat Pirates

Charlie Drake (The Worker) teams up with screen goddess Anne Heywood for this hilarious seagoing comedy.

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!
