Officials with Olive Films have announced that the company will re-issue another classic rom-com this summer.
Olive Films will re-issue Tony Curtis’ classic 1959 rom-com Operation Petticoat July 1st. The movie will be re-issued on Blu-ray and DVD. Co-starring fellow Hollywood legend Cary Grant (Father Goose, North by Northwest, Arsenic and Old Lace), the movie puts the two men on a broken down submarine called the Sea Tiger. The men are charged with getting the sub back in full working order. Along the way, the crew of the Sea Tiger rescues a group of nurses that had been stranded. The nurses paint the old grey, battle-scarred sub a bright pink. And that’s just the beginning of the riotous battle of the sexes on board the sub.
Grant and Curtis are joined by Joan O’Brien (The Alamo, It Happened at the World’s Fair, The Comancheros), Dina Merrill (Butterfield 8, Caddyshack II, The Player), Gene Evans (Shock Corridor, The Steel Helmet, My Friend Flicka), Dick Sargent (Bewitched, The Ghost and Mr. Chicken, That Touch of Mink), Arthur O’Connel (Fantastic Voyage, The Poseidon Adventure, Anatomy of a Murder), Gavin MacLeod (The Love Boat, McHale’s Navy, Mary Tyler Moore), Madlyn Rhue (It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, A Majority of One, Murder, She Wrote), and Marion Ross (Happy Days, Music Within, Superhero Movie).
Operation Petticoat was nominated for an Academy Award® for Best Writing (Story and Screenplay written directly for the screen). It was directed by Blake Edwards (Pink Panther, Victor Victoria) and photographed by Russell Harlan (Rio Bravo, Red River). The Blu-ray re-issue will retail for $29.95. The DVD re-issue will retail for $19.95.
