The under-wing bombs appear and disappear in many shots. Often a plane will be shown taxiing with bombs under the wing, then taking off and flying with no bombs. When the bombing runs begin, the bombs are again visible. See more »
CPO Steve Nelson:
And if you want to know what this is, it's a bomb! And there's enough T.N.T. in it to blow us to Smithereens.
I've always wanted to go to Smithereens.

This is an excellent vehicle for Wallace Beery and Clark Gable(in what would become standard roles for both of them). Lots of nice real life footage of the Saratoga V (sunk in Bikini Atoll by two atomic blasts in Bikini Atoll in 1946). If you want to see bi-planes taking off and landing on an aircraft carrier this movie is for you!!!. also, i believe they used footage of the 27 Jan 1928 mooring of the rigid air ship Los Angeles to the aircraft carrier. If you don't like those glossy-cheesy MGM movies this is the exception. Way above average early talkie movie and a piece of history too.
