The Art of Redemption
12 March 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This pretty good propaganda programmer has officer George Murphy fouling up, being busted out and reenlisting as a common sailor, where he runs into Pat O'Brien and Jane Wyatt, Murphy's ex-fiancée and O'Brien's sister.

It's interesting to watch the two stock Irishmen play off of each other, each in their usual registers: Murphy easy-going and O'Brien in his bulldog mode. The story also takes some interesting and unexpected turns that raise it above the usual level of flag waving propaganda. Somehow a Viennese violist and Desi Arnaz wind up in the crew for some comic relief *and* plot purposes.

RKO's technical department, the equal of any in the business, came up with a new machine to simulate the effects of horizon on the sea. Looks pretty good.
