Fed up with the inhumane prison living conditions, a general prison riot breaks out, leading to hostage-taking, a stand-off with the guards and eventual negotiations with the prison administration officials.
Very patriotic soap opera of the life of two close-knit naval cadet brothers (McCarthy and Derek) in love with the same woman (Diana Lynn, an absolute delight in a straight role). The stars charm, 50's period flavor (the only thing missing is a bottle of Coca-Cola), and classic story line carry the film. Enough interest for naval buffs and romance fans...and in glorious color! Good choice for a Red-White-and-Blue patriotic holiday.
