Out of the deep blue sea…into the turbulent fishbowl of fame. After heroically saving his crew from disaster aboard a navy submarine, Scotty McClenahan becomes an overnight celebrity. Lucrative job offers roll in. Banquets, newspapers and ticker-tape parades hail him. Advertisers want his endorsements. Passersby want his handshake. Meanwhile, a buzzsaw of a press agent keeps events snapping and spiraling. And Scotty, too private a man to enjoy the adoring glare of the public eye, feels he is “walking a tightrope on roller skates.” The pell-mell pace and privacy intrusions are undermining the one thing he values most: his marriage. Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. (Gunga Din) portrays Scotty, Mary Brian (1931’s The Front Page) is his wife, and Walter Catlett is a scheming PR man in this satiric comedy-drama whose story was likely inspired by the acclaim that greeted aviator Charles Lindbergh.
