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>

Flagg and Quirt
17 April 2008 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Victor Mclaglen was an actor of very limited range and ability.He found fame in his role as Flagg with Edmund Lowe playing Quirt in a series of military comedy adventures that started in the twenties and went through to the 40s.It seems that if Lowe wasn't around they hired a similar actor,in this case Preston Foster,to fill the void.It has to be said that after 5 minutes you can guess the plot and anticipate what is going to happen.It becomes utterly tiresome.Was it supposed to be funny or dramatic because it is neither.It is just totally formulaic.One can only assume that they did not have much money for special effects as the shipwreck scenes seem as if they are filmed in someones bathtub.So if you don't like Victor Mclaglen then don't bother with this film.
