Operation Bullshine (1959)

Assigned to an all-women anti-aircraft ATS (Auxiliary Territorial Service) unit on the English coast, handsome Lt. Gordon Brown (Donald Sinden) keeps the fact that he is married a secret so that he can join Major Pym (Naunton Wayne) in chasing after the female soldiers under his command.

During a training session, Brown discovers that his wife Pvt. Betty Brown (Barbara Murray) has secretly moved to the unit, which means he now has to battle the enemy and keep Betty from meeting his lover.

Dora Bryan loses her skirt on parade, while Peter Jones is a weapons enthusiast with an unintelligible Stanley Unwin-type patter.

It’s a pretty feeble comedy overall, and won’t win any fans amongst our modern liberated womenfolk.
