Storyline

After serving gallantly at Pearl Harbor, Navy Commander Don Winslow, and his pal and junior officer, Lieutenant "Red" Pennington, are assigned to the Coast Guard. There they are ordered to devote their activities to anti-fifth column work on the mainland. Don learns that The Scorpion, notorious alien enemy, is in the pay of the Japanese and is expected to lay the ground work for a Japanese attack on the Pacific coast. Constantly in peril and aided by Mercedes Colby, the daughter of a Navy Admiral, they investigate secret island-bases and battles with submarines and enemy airplanes.

A Real Disappointment
20 October 2004 | by (San Francisco, California) – See all my reviews

It's hard to believe that this is the follow up to "Don Winslow of the Navy." Something must have happened at Universal to cause this low budget disaster.

Poor production values from even the first chapter: too much stock footage; too many model shots of ships and planes; really cheap sets; hardly any plot or tension; poorly written with no interesting villain. Completely lacks the development and exciting cliff hangers of the first serial.

If the great director Richard Brooks added dialog ("Look out, Don!" "C'mon Red!"), how much more feeble it must have been before he "fine tuned" it! No wonder you don't see it on DVD: I rented a bootleg VHS copy from a local video store. Even Alpha Video wouldn't bother with this drek!
