One of the classic 1960 era comedies with two of Hollywoods great male actors. Cary Grant is terrific as the straight man to Tny Curtis's con-guy approach. Story starts out as a recollection of the history of a WW II submarine that is about to be decommisioned. Curtis is the current captain responsible for taking the sub to disposal. He opens the ship's log and begins reviewing the entries Grant made during the war. As the recollection goes back, Curtis is introduced as a new arriving junior officer assigned to the sub as a result of a strange set of circumstances. During his assignment he goes about his duties more like it's a regular day-to-day job where he's trying to not only milk it for everything he can, but doing such without actually working or being responsible for anything. As a die-in-the-wool con artist, he goes from one scam to another, creating laughs along the way. All the while Grant as his sub commander is looking forward to the day he can unload Curtis from his command. By the end all the movie Curtis's well laid-out plans for a life free of responsibility go south, as he ends up becoming a fine naval officer befitting of a ship command of his own. Look for a good number of future character actors who were more or less unknown then but later went on to series of their own (Gavin from the love boat, etc.). If you enjoy the humor of Curtis you'll love this one as he's at his best as the lovable character who warms your heart and makes you smile.

I've enjoyed watching this several times. It is an interesting movie about ex and death. They used good songs for the soundtrack. This DVD has special features that the one I rented did not. There are a lot of extra scenes. Apparently the movie could have been a drama, but when it was cut it ended up being a dark comedy. In addition to the two male characters, there is a strong female character. Depending on squemishness, you may not like the bullfighting or the meat-market scenes, but they don't take a lot of time on the screen.
