Warner Bros. thunderous story of the men of the merchant marine!
Did You Know?
Very few early World War II films featured African-Americans in the US military. Star Humphrey Bogart
was quoted in 'The Pittsburgh Courier' on 26 September 1942 as saying that he wanted to have a black Merchant Marine captain in this film. He said, "In the world of the theatre or any other phase of American life, the color of a man's skin should have nothing to do with his rights in a land built upon the self-evident fact that all men are created equal."
