One of a Kind
7 April 2004 | by (Fairbanks, U.S. Territory of Alaska) – See all my reviews

This movie takes place in the years following World War II and moves along into the years of the Korean `police action." I could be wrong but I don't believe there ever was a time in the movie when the conflict was called the Korean War. A war it certainly was, a police action a gross understatement.

The story focuses on one Navy man in particular, Francis Fane, who lead the way in U.S. Navy underwater breathing apparatus testing for use in underwater demolitions. Primarily a song and dance man, Dan Dailey played his part of Fane well. There was nothing incredibly fantastic about this movie except for the underwater cinematography. Kind of a snoozer but definitely one of the only movies about the development of underwater breathing apparatus and demolitions and overall not too terrible: C+
