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.
