Goofs

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 »

The 29 Year Old James Stewart
26 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Having acted alongside Edward G. Robinson, John Carradine and Lionel Barrymore in his previous film, the 29 year old James Stewart acted in this film with Roland Young titled 'Navy Blue and Gold'. A production line film to engage Stewart with big names, but the script and direction was still quite thin.
