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.

A good bottom-half of a double-bill
19 December 2006 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

Compact, well-paced, and easy on the eyes (as well as the brain), this is a worthy example of the "second features" coming out of Hollywood in the early to mid 1950s. It knows its place on the bottom half of a double-bill and has no pretensions to rise above its status.

The story line about the brothers-turned-rivals is satisfyingly predictable and intermixed with it is footage of the Naval Academy at Annapolis, back in the days when it was all-male and all-white. There's also a bit of aerial footage as the two brothers move from Annapolis to Pensacola to Corpus Christi and finally to Korea. There's even a street-scene shot of Tokyo in the post-war era.

John Derek, Diana Lynn, and Kevin McCarthy make an attractive threesome -- particularly in that glorious Technicolor of the era -- but despite all the obvious opportunities for shower-room and locker-room scenes at the Academy, there's very little beefcake. So much testosterone, so little skin! There is, however, a brief scene of a swimsuit-clad Diana Lynn and John Derek running out of the ocean and onto a beach, so we do get a glimpse of Derek's bare chest just about a year before it was caressed by Vincent Price's whip in 1956's "The Ten Commandments." Alvy Moore supplies the comic relief. (Does anyone "buy" him as a naval cadet?)
