Operation Bullshine is a 1959 British colour comedy film directed by
Gilbert Gunn and starring Donald Sinden,
Barbara Murray and Carole
Lesley. The working title of the film was Girls in Arms that
features in the film as a marching song. 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
