Preston Sturges and World War II
17 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Documentary short depicting the dangers of inadvertent dispersal of secret military information, showing the unintended and disastrous results of careless conversation and improper maintenance of secret records.

This film had the unfortunate timing in having a scene about "sailing to Hawaii", or perhaps fortunate depending on how you look at it. The Pearl Harbor attack really illustrated how serious it could be if a secret were to get out.

How interesting that this was made by Academy and not the War Department or something like that. And then to star Walter Huston, the patriarch of the Huston film family? And Eddie Bracken... wow. This was a very professional job.
