This film was made by the U.S. government during World War II to show its young servicemen the results of "fooling around" with "loose women" overseas. Actual victims of such sexually transmitted diseases as syphilis and gonorrhea are shown, along with the physical deterioration that accompanies those diseases. Written by
This is a wonderfully lame film complete with infected genitals (all male) and Raymond Massey as a distraught Executive Officer. I saw this for the first time on a Navy ship while in-port. When I told the Corpsman that I thought the film was great, he said, "it figures you would".
Cliched, melodramatic, overwrought acting. Every cornball cliche of WW II films is included, and there is truly nothing funnier than sailors referring to women that put out as "swell gals".
VD runs rampant. Sailors pass out, lose their vision, scream in pain, and display chancres and pustules that are guarenteed to make you reach for a condom.
Special highlight: There's a visit from the Health Department to a young lady that results in frustration because the nurse gives a dire warning to see a doctor, but will not tell the young lady why.
