Description: Roy Fleming (Don Knotts) is signed on to the space program at NASA by his father Buck (Arthur O'Connell), a gung-ho former World War I vet who is trying to make something out of his son. Roy becomes a janitor who is afraid of heights and mistaken for an astronaut through a series of comedic mishaps.

Knotts uses his patented brand of nervousness to perfection in this lighthearted situation comedy.~ Dan Pavlides, All Movie Guide
