Predictable and formula story that has been re-used by virtually the same cast. I personally ignored the story (partially due to the over-acting by Jimmy Cagney) and concentrated on the historic shots of early Marine Corps aviation and the Fleet Marine Force preparing for amphibious operations before there were Higgins Boats. Some really great flying shots. Who cares who got the girl! A must for aviation enthusiasts.
