Storyline

On a layover in Hawaii two conniving Navy seamen borrow money to lay down bets that their ship will win the upcoming gunnery practice trophy, having found out that the current gunnery champ has just transferred aboard their ship. What they haven't learned, however, is that the marksman's enlistment is up before the contest is supposed to take place. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

The comedic genius of The Great One at an early stage.
25 May 1999 | by (Auburn, Me) – See all my reviews

Typical movie made during this time period to entertain the general public during WWII. Forget the silly plot, check out this film for a glimpse of Jackie The Great One Gleason in one of his first screen appearances. Although in a very minor role as Tubby the Sailor his performance was an indication of what lay ahead for one of this country's greatest comedians and entertainers. If you're a Jackie Gleason fan you can't miss this one.
