    Don't Give up the Ship
    Don't Give Up the Ship stars Jerry Lewis as a navy officer who is whisked away from his honeymoon by a senate investigating committee. The committee would like to know what happened to the U.S.S. Kornblatt, the battleship Lewis had commandeered during the War; the crew arrived home safely, but the battleship completely disappeared! Jerry suffers from a mental block concerning the Kornblatt, so the navy assigns a beautiful psychiatrist (Dina Merrill) to probe his subconscious. With the help of an ex-sailor from the Kornblatt (Mickey Shaughnessy), Jerry locates the wreckage of the ship, tracing the responsibility of its disappearance to the investigating committee chairman (Gale Gordon). Based on a true incident (!), Don't Give Up the Ship stands up today as one of Jerry Lewis' best films. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      I could not wait to buy this right after it was released on DVD. The picture is nice and clear and the sound is clear. I love Dina Merrill and she is smoking hot in this picture. Typical Jerry Lewis antics which most people love. Great supporting cast and many funny moments. Loved this movie as a kid and it is rarely if ever on TV so now I can watch any time that I want too, USS Kornblatt where are you located.
