Here is a little plot synopsis from the Internet Movie Database.
During World War II, a commander finds himself stuck with a decrepit (and pink) submarine, a con man executive officer, and a group of army nurses.
The Draughon-Moore home known as the "Ace of Clubs House" is the oldest standing house in Texarkana, Texas. The house was built from the winnings of a card game and that is how it received its name the "Ace Of Clubs" house.
Built-in 1885, the historic Ace of Clubs House is on both the State of Texas and National Historic Registers and is an integral part of the landscape of historic downtown Texarkana. Mrs. Olivia Smith Moore donated the unique property, built in the shape of a club, to the Texarkana Museums System in the 1980s to fulfill her desire to help maintain the history of our region. It has been visited by Bob Villa and featured on HGTV's Christmas Castles.
