Operation Bullshine DVD Cover

'Fall in for laughs' is the order for the day in this colourful wartime-set comedy feature – a box-office hit in 1959 for Girls at Sea director Gilbert Gunn and boasting a top-flight cast that includes Donald Sinden, Dora Bryan and Barbara Murray.

Presented in a brand-new digital transfer, Operation Bullshine charts the misadventures of a group of Auxiliary Territorial Service girls stationed at an anti-aircraft post on a remote stretch of the English coast – along with the handsome lieutenant in charge of the battery, and his wife, a fellow-ATS girl who's none too happy about her husband's latest posting… particularly when regulations force them to conceal the fact that they are married!
