Storyline

Brash young Coast Guardsman Mike O'Shay and much-decorated CPO 'Medals' Malone hate each other even before they meet, and their enmity isn't helped by O'Shay's attraction to Doris, Medals' daughter. Medals has plans for Doris to marry officer's candidate Steve, and does everything he can to keep Mike and Doris apart. When Steve is seriously injured on an iceberg demolition assignment because Malone and O'Shay are fighting, courts martial are in order. Malone swears he'll say anything to get O'Shay drummed out of the service, but whose story will the officers believe? Written by Sister Grimm <srgrimm@teleport.com>

Lively late thirties action picture
13 July 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a lively and straightforward action melodrama that stars Victor McLaglen as a Coast Guard skipper in conflict with new boy Preston Foster ,partly for professional and partly for personal reasons .He has a daughter (Ida Lupino ) who he wishes to see wed to seaman Donald Woods .The problem is that she and Foster are in love with each other ,leading to friction between father and daughter on one hand and between father and suitor on the other . The script is lively and rapidly paced .Ben Stoloff directs at a brisk pace and the monochrome photography of J Roy Hunt and Joseph August is crisp and good to look at.
