Wanted to be Casablanca. Good movie to laugh at.
25 August 2004 | by (Elizabethtown, KY) – See all my reviews

This is not a good film to watch unless you're into watching films and making fun of them like me and my friends do.

Corregidor was made a year after Casablanca and it seems to me that the makers of Corregidor were clearly trying grab some of the Casablanca fans. It is, however, not anywhere near the quality of Casablanca.

"Doctors on Corregidor sort out a love triangle while fighting the invading Japanese forces. [1943] with Otto Kruger & Donald Woods. Approximately 1 hour, 6 minutes - B/W."

I enjoyed laughing at most of this film but two of my favorites are Sgt. Mahoney, (Frank Jenks), and a nurse named "Hey-Dutch", (Wanda Mckay). Mahoney is always trying to crack jokes at the worst times and "Hey-Dutch", well, her name is stupid! Ah, good times, good times.

The DVD recording I viewed of the film was not that good but I'm sure the original film has deteriorated over time.

An interesting tidbit of trivia is that Ruby Dandridge played a minor part as Hyacinth. Ruby is the mother of Dorothy Dandridge.
