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

The studio got the U.S. Navy's permission to join 200 ships and 10,000 men in the Virgin Islands, to film a three-day assault on the Puerto Rican island of Vieques. Some of the footage was included in Away All Boats. The cast and crew boarded in St. Thomas and filmed aboard the USS Randall (renamed the Belinda in the film). The film crew shot deck and aerial photography of the Navy's maneuvers. Director Pevney hired 25 Marines as extras for the film. See more »

Capt. Jebediah S. Hawks:
[after a poor gunnery exercise]
Now hear this. This is the Captain speaking. You are to get down on your knees. Down on your knees, I say, and give thanks that that was only a 30-foot piece of canvas instead of an enemy bomber. I've seen ten-year-old kids shoot better with slingshots!

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.
