Western stories and legends based, and filmed, in and around Death Valley, CA. One of the longest-running Western series, originating on radio in the 1930s. The continuing sponsor was "20 Mule Team" Borax, a product mined in Death Valley.

The story of USS 'Belinda', Attack Transport PA22, launched late 1943 with regular-navy captain Hawks and ex-merchant captain MacDougall as boat commander. Despite personal friction, the two have plenty to deal with as the only experienced officers on board during the "shakedown." Almost laughable incompetence gradually improves, but the crew remains far from perfect when the ship sees action, landing troops on enemy beachheads. And few anticipate the challenges in store at Okinawa... Written by

Kerama Retto is mentioned as the destination of the Bellinda after she is seriously damaged by a kamikaze. This island, about a dozen miles southwest of Okinawa, was taken by the 77th Infantry Division at the start of the invasion, and used as both a staging area and an emergency anchorage, exactly as shown in the movie.

Just before the crew begins to seal the hatch to make an air bubble, light can be seen reflecting off the water deep in the hold. For this to happen there would have to be an above water opening in the side of the ship, which would make an air bubble impossible. However, the hold is obviously a stage setting with lights above the water to make it visible. See more »
Lieut. Dave MacDougall:
Command's one of the loneliest jobs in the world. Eating alone most of the time. Living from the bridge, to the chartroom, to an empty cabin.
He wouldn't be so lonesome if he were a little more sociable.
Lieut. Dave MacDougall:
He can't be sociable. Not aboard his own ship. No captain can. If he becomes too friendly, he may start relying on friendship instead of his own judgement. At that moment, he's no longer a good captain.

Away All Boats is a World War II movie about men at sea. The first time I watched it, I thought it was rather slow moving. I've now seen it 5 times, and it gets better every time. I catch something new each time I watch it. I'm looking forward to seeing it again. How did I miss so much the first time I saw it? I now love the pace of this movie and see that it is well suited to telling the story. The photography is great and sometimes even spectacular in Away All Boats. There are also some nice moments of humor in this movie. I recommend this one. 8/10.
