Goofs

The crew inadvertently receives an uncoded voice transmission from a German supply ship indicating its destination. In fact, German supply ships were sent to meet U-boats at prearranged meeting locations by German headquarters back in Europe using coded messages. Therefore, the crew should never have understood the transmission. Since this movie was filmed during the war, these facts were likely unknown at the time. See more »

On Life Support but Manages to Survive
25 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Bit Below Average as these Propaganda Pictures Go. Pat O'Brien is a Stiff Actor and He Plays a Stiff here with an Ultra-Sombre Display of Deadpan. George Murphy Fairs Better and Manages to Bring Along Some Gravitas as a Former Naval Officer Court Martialed Before the War.

After Pearl Harbor He Re-Enlists as an Enlisted Man and has More Trials Convincing O'Brien He is a Worthy Salt and Deserving of His Respect and His Sister. Betty White is the Love Interest and the Sister, and Manages to Show Up at Sea so Things can be Set Straight.

It's Rather a Mess of Flag Waving and Stereotypes with Cartoon Characters, like the Brooklyn Boy who "Loves Dem Bums", and Ricky Ricardo, Before Lucy, as a Cuban Come Aboard for the Melting Pot Plot.

The Movie's Redeemed in the Final Act with some Rah-Rah Action and is Exciting, but Highly Inaccurate. Accuracy doesn't Mean a Hill of Beans in this Type of Formulaic Patriotism. These Movies were Made to Boost Morale and Get the Boys to Enlist and the Homefront on Board. If this One Succeeded More Power to it. Not Much of a Movie Though.
