Goofs

The radio signal about the German supply ship's position is inaccurate for a number of reasons. 1) Voice radio was used for only very short range transmissions. Morse code was used for all long range transmissions. 2) It was actually quite easy to hear most enemy radio transmissions. Decoding them was the difficult part. 3) "Garble" was used for some land based voice communications, but not with radio. Messages were coded before transmission and the encoded message was sent. Despite all this, the de-garbled radio code was a common plot device in U.S. war movies of World War II. See more »

John Paul Jones Would Be Proud
14 March 2005 | by (minneapolis, minnesota, on the planet Earth) – See all my reviews

Before the Village People popularized the United States Navy with their song "In The Navy" this aquatic based branch of the armed forces was featured in many a Hollywood film during World War Two. "The Navy Comes Through" is one of those films and it features Pat O'Brien and George Murphy who are at odds with each other as they head out to sea as part of a gunnery crew to sink Nazi vessels. The overall theme to the film is a common one to WW II era war movies. A group of men with disparate backgrounds (in this case an Austrian-American, Ricky Ricardo, the ubiquitous guy from Brooklyn, and the boy who will become a man once he has seen some action) are thrown together to stick it to the Nazis. The idea is that America, the land of the melting- pot, can prevail over totalitarianism as long as everyone is willing to pull together. During the movie O'Brien's acting style is consistently blunt. The interior of the German subs are enormous. The action is well paced, and in the end the Navy really does comes through.
