Shipmates Stand Together
5 July 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Though bigger studios like MGM with Navy Blue And Gold and Warner Brothers with Shipmates Forever did bigger budgeted Annapolis stories, Annapolis Salute from RKO stands good comparison and can hold its own with the heavyweight film factories. In fact it's a whole lot like Navy Blue And Gold.

Like the MGM classic Annapolis Salute is the story of three roommates and their time at the Academy. Jim Ellison is from a navy family and his father Harry Carey, Sr. cheers his progress from the sidelines. Van Heflin is a spoiled rich kid and Arthur Lake is a slow witted Texan.

It's women in the persons of Marsha Hunt, Ann Hovey, and Marilyn Vernon that are the real traps for these midshipmen to ignore. They are almost the undoing of Ellison.

This film gives you the opportunity to see Arthur Lake before he was permanently and irrevocably cast as Dagwood Bumstead. But I think they laid on the slow wittedness to think with him and Vernon who plays his sister. I can't imagine how this dunce wangled an appoointment to Annapolis.

Other than that a good film.
