Packergirl

Correction: The character's name is Hunkle, not Holden.

Corrected entry: When the sub is going to attack a docked tanker, they are about 2,000 yards out. There are several views through the periscope, but none of them indicate any movement, yet they will "fire at 1500 yards".

Correction: The vessel they're tracking is standing still. The Sea Tiger is the ship that's moving.

Corrected entry: At the very end, the little boy runs up to Cary Grant's character and calls him "Mr. Grant."

Correction: Actually, the little boy calls him "Uncle Matt".

Mistakes

A sailor goes out on the luau covered deck to get his guitar, during an air raid. He lays down while a Zero strafes the deck hitting his guitar, which goes flying into the air toward the camera and lands about 10 feet from the sailor. In the next shot, the sailor kneels up and grabs his guitar which has appeared right next to him.

Trivia

Operation Petticoat was filmed at the US Naval Base in Key West Fla. They actually did paint a submarine pink. I was attending the Fleet Sonar School on the base at the time and watched with great interest. The submarine used was the U.S.S. Balao (SS-285), which was still in commission at the time.
