Bill Rourk, an ex-Coast Guard crew chief, is tricked into volunteering for the Coact Guard Officer's Training School, following the Japanese sneak-attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Rourk's preference would be to keep the higher-paying and more-secure job in a civilian shipyard. Coadt Guard Commander McFarland first meets Rourk at the shipyard and, later, is his superior officer at the officer's-training-school. Rourk fails to get his Ensign's commission, and then finds he has been assigned to McFarland's command at sea. Matters are not helped any by both men being rivals for Louise Ryan, the admiral's daughter. Written by

Well, I agree, I am naughty with this kind of production. This kind of ultra patriotic movie that already shows brave soldiers who fight with all their guts against evil Japanese army. And, of course, it begins with the Pearl Harbor "incident", on December 7th 1941...
Nothing unusual, here. Heroes - Donlevy and Russel - fighting for the same woman - Ella Raines. We can see Richard Jaeckel at his acting beginning. A mix up between romance, war sequences - mostly stock shots
training schedules. Action, OK, but boring for me. I prefer hardcore
and realistic war movies. Anti war films. The fiercest of them all.
No, it's not a bad feature. A good Jo Kane's indeed. But not my favourite.
