A accurate little picture about life in Annapolis in the 1930s.
12 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Acting was a little stiff but the characters were believable. Being a graduate of West Point, I cared about the real people portrayed. Most stories about the academies are not true to life. Much of this is a reflection of the times when military figures were heroes. It was a treat to see Cabot in a leading role without John Wayne. Betty Furness looked pure and pretty and intelligent as the admiral's daughter.The rest of the cast is forgettable. The magpie girl talking without a breath was irritating but that was what she was supposed to add to the story. Finally, I must comment that Jack would really survived his mis-deeds especially entering into a restricted zone. He would not have had a chance to voluntarily resign. He would have been booted out.
