Movie Info

Posted in France, Pvt. Hogan (Jack Lemmon) falls hard for Betty Bixby (Kathryn Grant), a nurse who happens to be a lieutenant, which means they are forbidden to fraternize due to their ranks. Always one to skirt the rules, Hogan, with the help of his friend Cpl. Bohun (Dick York), cooks up a scheme to throw a clandestine ball for all the soldiers and nurses. But the two have their work cut out for them when the authoritative Capt. Paul Lock (Ernie Kovacs) starts breathing down their necks.

Critic Reviews for Operation Mad Ball

All Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • This fast and lively army comedy deserves a further commendation here, despite a few rather gruesome bits in a morgue. Jack Lemmon, Kathryn Grant and TV's Ernie Kovacs are amusingly on hand.

Audience Reviews for Operation Mad Ball

  • Jun 24, 2009
    Strictly pedestrian effort despite cast of talented actors who have all made much better films then this. Indifferently directed and it just sort of ends without a real finish.
