Trivia

The first carrier shown, during training with the 20 on her deck; is the U.S.S. Bennington. The second carrier shown, during carrier operation in Korea with the 10 on her deck; is the U.S.S. Yorktown. Both carriers are Essex class carriers built near the end of World War II. Both were later modernized to accommodate jets. The last carrier shown just as the film is ending with 41 on the deck; is the U.S.S. Midway in World War II trim. The clip of the Midway shows the gun mounts at the end of the flight deck that were removed as part of the SCB-27A conversion that brought all the Essex class carriers up to handling jets.

Generic Academy Salute
10 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

With a pretense of being a salute to a great American institution and the brave officers it produces, this film relies on choppy inserts of combat stock footage, flat dialogue, and improbable situations (but nonetheless a very predictable plot swiped from the 1928 film "Annapolis") to "glorify" a great tradition. Everyone looks great, including the Navy fighter jets, and there are some respectful shots of Academy traditions, but if the studio wanted to make a cinema salute to Annapolis and its graduates who served in the Korean war, it should have employed a more creative and/or dedicated director and more talented writers, film editors, and cinematographers. Annapolis deserves better. For dramatic contrast see John Ford's salute to West Point: "The Long Gray Line."
