Storyline

Anxious to see some naval action in the Pacific during WWII, Lt. Bill Gordon makes the mistake of telling his new girlfriend, ditzy Elaine Carter, that he was an expert in deciphering codes. Trying to keep him in the states for herself, she convinces her uncle to add him to a unit charged with deciphering the enemy's coded messages. With the murder of his superior, Gibson attempts, with the "help" of Elaine, to root out the spy ring that's been intercepting valuable troop movement information.

Remarkably good fun

Looking at some of the other comments, I started to wonder if they and I had seen different movies.

Or maybe they were just in a bad mood while watching.

Regardless, I loved this movie. I found the performers -- mostly un- or little-known actors -- very good and likable. Even the bad guys displayed a certain charm.

The dialog was often clever, and often downright funny.

The story itself was perhaps not edge-of-the-seat exciting -- I mean, heck, of course the good guys were gonna win; after all, it was a wartime film -- but it kept a willing viewer watching.

If you've not seen this, I recommend it. Just remember: Context, context, context. Remember when it was made, and what was going on in the world.

And, as always, suspend your disbelief. Relax and enjoy.
