Trivia

Premiered at the Great Lakes Naval Training Station, and the Genesee Theatre in Waukegan, with star Robert Lowery, Paramount contractees Susan Hayward, Phyllis Brooks and Albert Dekker and director 'William A. Berke'(as William Berke) in attendance. See more »

Goofs

In the movie the sailors saluted the petty officer who is a NCO. Only commissioned and warrant officers are saluted. The only exception would be an enlisted Metal of Honor recipient who would be saluted like an officer. Not a goof. Recruits in Navy boot camp must salute everyone except fellow recruits. See more »

Molding an Espirit De Corps
15 May 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Robert Armstrong as a Navy CPO sees to the training of such various navy recruits as Robert Lowery, William Henry, Larry Nunn, Roscoe Karns, and Tom Keene in The Navy Way. This was a Pine-Thomas production from Paramount and was shot at the Great Lakes Naval Training Station.

Trying to mold an Espirit De Corps among this lot isn't an easy job for Armstrong. His biggest problem is Robert Lowery who before he got drafted was a promising middleweight boxer from the wrong side of the tracks. The biggest thing holding him from going over the hill is Pharmacist's Mate Jean Parker. But Henry who is a rich kid who enlisted is also interested in her.

As in Casablanca they all see that the problems of three people don't amount too much with the country at war. As for Lowery you can sympathize a bit with him because he's reaching his peak as a fighter. A whole lot of athletes in all sports missed their peak years during World War II.

Certainly The Navy Way is rather dated as a film, but it's still good entertainment. As for the Great Lakes Naval Training Station that's still there and still molding recruits The Navy Way.
