Let's All Go To The Movies - A Ticklish Affair

Occasionally the search for old photographs finds your LOST GALLERY curator in the darkest corner of a junk shop, elbow deep in a hat-box of ephemera. It's rare, but occasionally we see a familiar face ...

It's Gig Young and Shirley Jones.

The movie is the 1963 opus called "A Ticklish Affair".

From the TCM web site:
A Ticklish Affair, directed by George Sidney, had originally been planned as a vehicle for Jean Simmons under the title Moon Walk. Written by Ruth Brooks Flippen, the film was based on a story by Barbara Luther about widowed Amy Martin (Jones) and her three young sons. When one of the boys accidentally sends out a SOS in Morse code using his bedroom blinds, it's seen from a passing Naval vessel and the Navy investigates. The Commander (Young) naturally falls in love with Amy but she isn't sure she wants to live the life of a naval wife. Friends and family conspire to bring the couple together. In the cast were Carolyn Jones, Red Buttons, Billy Mumy, and Get Smart's chief, Edward Platt.
