An American Naval Officer's talent for living the good life in wartime is challenged when he falls in love and is sent on a dangerous mission.
James Garner utters the phrase "A man could get killed" several times during this movie, the title of the movie in which he appeared two years later.
Lt. Cmdr. Charles E. Madison:
Hi, Harry. It'll only be a few moments, sir. Put that hand luggage in the automobile. Paul? Paul!
Chief Petty Officer Paul Adams: Yeah.
Lt. Cmdr. Charles E. Madison: Put the footlocker in the jeep. Everything else goes in the two-and-a-half. Unloading shouldn't take long, so you won't be more than a few minutes ...
Lt. Cdr. Madison was addressed as "Commander" throughout. This is incorrect. Naval officers of this and lower ranks are addressed as "Mister." Madison would have been "Mister Madison" to admirals, "Mister Madison, sir" to anyone he outranked.
The three women that James Coburn sleeps with are collectively credited as "The Three Nameless Broads (in order of appearance)".
