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 buzz saw 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.
