Walter Eckland (Cary Grant) is an unshaven beach bum bamboozled into working for the British navy during World War Two by Commodore Frank Houghton (Trevor Howard). Eckland is forced to spot enemy Japanese planes from a remote desert island, with bottles of whiskey as his only reward. The relative calm is shattered, however, when schoolteacher Catherine Freneau (Leslie Caron) and her seven female charges are stranded on the island.
