It's not what a man says; it is what he does.
23 May 2003 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

An average war action film about Navy pilots on a U.S. aircraft carrier during the Korean War. A very good cast that barely gains full throttle. The players include: Van Johnson, Walter Pidgeon, Frank Lovejoy, Keenan Wynn, Robert Horton, and Louis Calhern. And a cameo by six year old Jerry Mathers. A couple of tense scenes during this 79 minute film; but nothing real outstanding.
