and Carole Lesley.[1] The working title of the film was Girls in Arms that features in the film as a marching song.[2] Gunn had filmed Girls at Sea the previous year. The new title, based on an American "euphemism" for a very British word with the same meaning, comes from the frenzied activity preparing for their brigadier's surprise inspection. The film features 1956 Olympic swimmer Judy Grinham as a physical training instructor. The film was released in the USA in 1963 by Seven Arts Productions.
