Measles and Cookies
2 May 2017 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

Seaman Crump (Gerald Trump) unknowingly throws his shirt on a tanning lamp being used by Seaman Di Julio (Harvey Lembeck). It creates odd red-shaped spots on his face, causing acting captain Lt. St. John (Jack Mullaney) to think he has measles and quarantine the USS Appleby. The crew spends their time on 116 contest entries that they mail. The medical officer rules out measles and the quarantine is ended. Di Julio receives a telegram informing him that he has tied for 1st place in the Fluffy Flower Cookie Contest with cookies St. John's mother baked. Now he must compete in a winner-take-all televised bake-off on the Fluffy Flower Cookie Hour. They must come up with the recipe, and trick Ensign O'Toole (Dean Jones) into dissecting the ingredients using a microscope. Di Julio struggles time and time again to bake an edible entry. At last he comes up with the right combination and prepares in front of the cameras for the bake-off against a sweet, old lady who gives the men a hard-luck story.
