Synopsis

While on a visit to the French Riviera, the officers of the gunboat H.M.S. Scotia throw a shipboard party to celebrate the engagement of Marine Captain Randall to Jill Eaton. Upon discovering that the last shore boat is unseaworthy, Jill and her American friend Mary Carlton are forced to spend the night on the ship. Unknown to all, there is a third female aboard--Antoinette, a fiery French redhead determined to hold the wolfish Marine Ogg to his marriage proposal. Complications arise when the captain learns that Admiral Hewitt has decided to make Scotia his flagship and will set sail for Genoa immediately. When the admiral discovers Jill in the captain's cabin, the young woman blurts out that she married the captain that morning; unfortunately Mary tells the identical story when she is also discovered. Upon the ship's arrival in Genoa the next morning, the admiral's wife comes aboard and finds Antoinette in the captain's bath. After a round of additional misunderstandings, everyone is reconciled, except Ogg. Although he succeeds in palming Antoinette off on the ship's commander, he spots a launch approaching with another past love; and she is accompanied by her two brothers and a clergyman.
