Not a very good movie. I can't remember when this was last shown on the boob tube. Much of it was filmed on location aboard the USS Los Angeles (CA-135), a heavy cruiser once homeported in Long Beach, California. Many ship's company appeared as extras. If you're a Glenn Ford or Donald O'Connor fan, or simply want to see what a heavy gun cruiser looked like, it might be worth your time. Just don't have any expectations beyond that. There are better WWII Navy movies out there, such as "The Enemy Below," "The Caine Mutiny," and "Onionhead." For some good inside info on the making of "Cry For Happy," ask anybody who was serving aboard the LA when this was filmed.
