Alrighty.

A movie. A peaceful man is coerced into military service and comes to be in charge of an unusual crew.

Oh, and I should mention, his "crew" is not in the service, but are strictly volunteers.

No. See my above clue that the military service is not American. It has to do with the Royal Navy.

does the crew "volunteer" because doing so will get them out of prison ?

No. They do so because they're bored with their lessons.

No. It's a comedy, a romance and has a bit of WWII war action.

No, American. The two lead characters are American and French. Coincidentally, some of the secondary scenes are set at Kings Point, New South Wales.

Well I haven't the faintest idea. Don't know anything that fits the criteria.
Never heard of Kings Point before - apparently there is one in the north and one in the south.

Hints- This was one of the last films for a very iconic actor, who was cast very much against type. He very much wanted Audrey Hepburn to play opposite him, but she was already committed to star in My Fair Lady. The actress who came to be cast was an Oscar winner, famous for her dancing. And the "crew" are school-children.

Father Goose

If this is correct and it sounds like it is - I am Australian so the Royal Navy is not the same as the Royal Australian Navy but that is not why I found it so difficult. I have seen this movie on TV but so long ago and couldn't remember the plot, forgot about the children and that the woman was French. And of course it is older and younger than I was thinking about.

If it isn't Father Goose - well I'm done .You can't reasonably tell me any more except the name

Well done, good game either way.

Yes, Father Goose. I remember Trevor Howard referring to "His Majesty's Navy," so I assume it was British. But they were operating near Australia.

Your go, @BlueMts .
