Near the end of the climatic Army-Navy game, Navy scores a touchdown and extra point to tie the score at 7 late in the game. The next scene has Army then kicking off to Navy. This is of course incorrect as Navy would be kicking to Army following the score. See more »
A fun and enlightening perspective on the USNA from the 1930's
This is a fun period piece for graduates, parents of current midshipmen or of Naval Academy graduates, or staff and faculty of the Naval Academy to get a look at the US Naval Academy of the 1930's. It's fun light piece which provides some interesting historical perspective on the USNA - to include the left hand salute to Tecumseh, the rooms in Bancroft Hall, the yard prior to much of the WW2 and post WW2 construction etc. The story is light but fun and is a reflection of the pre-WW2 America in which it was made. Also fun to see a very young Jimmy Stewart and Robert Young, and the "Good Witch" from the Wizard of Oz.
