Goofs

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 »

Quotes

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.
Ann Mitchell: I've always wanted to go to Smithereens.

Good for historical record-
21 December 2011 | by (Twentynine Palms, CA) – See all my reviews

Just saw this for the first time on TV- lots of Navy history mixed in with a pretty decent plot. Seems unbelievable that Clark Gable was ever that young, but this is from 1931! The carrier that this was filmed aboard was the Navy's second real aircraft carrier, the Saratoga, and seeing her in original, unaltered condition is fascinating. Slight correction to one of the previous reviewers- the planes are Curtiss F8C-4 Helldivers, the first Navy plane to bear that name. One of the pilots that flew in the film from NAS North Island, was the very young John Thach, later to be the air tactician that figured out how to defend against the Mitsubishi Zero in World War II. All in all, an important historical record that should be on DVD!
