Destination Tokyo (1943)
Obviously propaganda, a stirring formula making film
Made during the second world war this film obviously shows its propaganda heritage. It does contain all the 'token' characters of a NAVY film including the hothead, rookie, bragger, comedy cook but I believe thats probably because it was the first film with these elements.
The underwater scenes are a little 'Thunderbirds' but they do convey the tension properly and Grant flows with Captain 'esk speeches including the 'Roller Skates' one which is a little bizarre.
Over all a top notch underwater fiesta.
