A submarine newly commissioned is damaged in the opening days of World War II. A captain, looking for a command insists he can get it to a dockyard and captain it. Going slowly to this site, they find a stranded group of Army nurses and must take them aboard. Trying to get a primer coat on the sub, they have to mix white and red in order to have enough, and find themselves with the world's only pink submarine.
Tony Curtis does a quick three golf ball (egg?) cascade about halfway through the movie.
