Grant, uncharacteristically, plays unkempt alcoholic beach bum Eckland in this, his penultimate film. Persuaded by Australian naval officer Commodore Houghton (Howard) to spy on planes flying overhead in return for a liquor shipment, Eckland manages to keep World War II at bay. However, he soon finds himself more involved when a French schoolmistress (Caron) and seven little girls crash land nearby while on the run from the Japanese.
Unshaven jowls and an overlong drunken scene fail to hide Grant's true suave self, and the story all too slowly descends into sentimental sludge.
