Trivia

The characters of Robert Nelson and Elliott Jennings were based on real-life traitors Robert Noble and Ellis Jones, who worked together in an organization called "Friends of Progress" and staged a mock impeachment trial of President Franklin D. Roosevelt that was still going on when Pearl Harbor was attacked. Ultimately both men were arrested and convicted under a California state law calling for the registration of subversive organizations. See more »

A Must See for Bad Movie Fans
25 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Number of Things Draw Attention to this Billy Beaudine Directed Ultra-Cheapie from Monogram.

Every Scene Looks Just as Cheap as it is. The Fight Scenes have the Most Anemic Sound Effects Ever Heard in a Professional Movie. The Punches are Punctuated by a Sort of Clicky, Squishy Sound. The Battle on the Ocean is So Confusing with its Use of Repetitive Shots and Still Photos Foreshadowing Ed Wood by a Number of Years.

The Sets are Incredibly Bare and Frumpy Even by Monogram Standards. They Look Thrown Together from what was Lying Around and are Dusty and Dirty Given the Appearance that a Dust Rag or Broom wasn't Available.

The Cast, Except for the Glimmering Gale Storm Who Just Radiates, Look and Are, Miscast, Bored, Drunk, and Without Makeup Most of the Time. Everything in the Movie Looks Old, and Worn Out Including the Plot that is Ironically Only a Year or So After Pearl Harbor.

There are Subversive Peace Organizations, Good Russian Comrades, Scarface Nazis, and a Jap Played by an Obvious White Actor with a Painted On Mustache. The Crowning Achievement is Miss Storm's Bouncy Performance Singing "Taps for the Japs". Now that's a Precognitive Pop Tune.
