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>

A silly plot, but the coast guard procedures and special effects are worth a look.
22 March 1999 | by (Pine Grove, California) – See all my reviews

The only reason to see this film is for the nice special effects involving a yacht being pounded against a reef in a hurricane and the way the coast guard rescues its passengers. I also enjoyed their mission to explode an iceberg. But I could have done without the brawling of Victor McLaglen and Preston Foster, which propelled the silly plot and just served to kill time between the action. I never did understand why servicemen fight so much in films of the 30's. Seeing a young Ida Lupino was also delightful and the comedy provided by Billy Gilbert and McLaglen's relationship with saloon owner Helen Flint helped a bit.

The film is dedicated to the men of the coast guard, who often risk their lives to effect a rescue of distressed ships at sea.
