No Girls in this Picture
13 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoyed the great acting by Gene Kelly playing the role as a Navy Lt."Brad" Bradwell who is a weapons expert in torpedo training and is enlisted by the British Navy to help with a secret mission of completing a powerful torpedo which is fired from a submarine. The British had failed their experiment and lost many men an a submarine, so they decided to work with the United States Navy in trying to complete their mission. The story takes place on a island with British personnel and there are plenty of problems that they all face in trying to get along with each other and the hope for a successful testing of their weapon. Great acting by Gene Kelly who took off his dancing shoes and played a great dramatic role.
