Entertaining Movie
27 July 2003 | by (Santiago de Chile.) – See all my reviews



What a pleasant surprise, I didn't expect anything special from this film, and it's a really entertaining yarn involving the US Navy, with Robert Montgomery in the leading role, as devil-may-care sailor who falls for an Admiral's daughter (Dorothy Jordan).

There are funny, fine, comedy moments, especially between Montgomery and the excellent Ernest Torrence, and also with Cliff Edwards, who impersonates the hero's pal. Also, there's romantic competition and rivalry, involving Montgomery and Gavin Gordon, who plays a Navy Lieutenant in love with Jordan. There are also some fine action moments with battleships and a fire scene.

A worthwhile early talkie, if you catch it on TCM give it a try!
