Trivia

Art directors Carroll Clark and Albert S. D'Agostino developed a special "sky and horizon" machine which created the effect of water motion against the horizon. All the sea shots were filmed on land using rocking arc lamps that projected waves on an acre of muslin. See more »

Goofs

The destroyer momentarily seen through the U-boat's periscope after the first fight was USS Preble (DD-345). The picture was obviously from well before the war, since Preble was converted to a minelayer (DM-20) in 1937. Further, she served in the Pacific, not the Atlantic. See more »

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.
