Plot Summary
Cmdr. Key Weedon (Gig Young), sent to investigate a mysterious SOS blinker off the coast of San Diego, discovers a 6-year-old boy with a blinker-light toy, who sent the signal through his bedroom window blinds. After meeting the boy's widowed mother, Amy Martin (Shirley Jones), Weedon instantly falls for her and asks for her hand. Their romance is tested by her resistance to military men and the petulance of her youngest son, Grover, whose hijinks don't stop with the fake SOS signal.
