Friese-Greene to the rescue!, 11 July 2015
Author: JohnHowardReid

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Originally released under the title, "Our Fighting Navy", the movie was re-titled for American distribution. Strictly for connoisseurs and the young-at-heart, this Boys Own Paper, comic-strip adventure, although British made, has three American stars. Beyond a lively opening and a closing montage of Royal Navy stock footage, the direction is dull and the propaganda rather dated. But nevertheless the cast is excellent and everyone plays his role with considerable spirit. (I say "his" advisedly, as both Hazel Terry and Binkie Stuart have a comparatively small amount of footage). The photography can only be described as superb, thanks to the efforts of Claude Friese-Greene, the son of the man whom the British claim invented motion picture photography. (See The Magic Box).
