Storyline

Brash young Coast Guardsman Mike O'Shay and much-decorated CPO 'Medals' Malone hate each other even before they meet, and their enmity isn't helped by O'Shay's attraction to Doris, Medals' daughter. Medals has plans for Doris to marry officer's candidate Steve, and does everything he can to keep Mike and Doris apart. When Steve is seriously injured on an iceberg demolition assignment because Malone and O'Shay are fighting, courts martial are in order. Malone swears he'll say anything to get O'Shay drummed out of the service, but whose story will the officers believe? Written by Sister Grimm <srgrimm@teleport.com>

Typical Frank Wead Script
5 June 2020 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

It's a Frank Wead script, so there's Victor Maclaglen with his daughter Ida Lupino; Maclaglen wants earnest Donald Woods to marry her, but she prefers roving Preston Foster, so Maclaglen and Foster spend the movie fighting, while Woods is a nice guy. Well, we know he's not going to end the movie well.

It's an Edward Small production, so there are some spectacular sequences on it, particularly the big storm at sea that caps off the picture. Joe August shoots the sequence with a beautiful, multi-source lighting set-up, and plenty of smoke and blown spray. Absolutely gorgeous.

Oh, by the way, this time it's the Coast Guard.
