Short and tolerably effective war film.
25 September 2017 | by JimkiddSee all my reviews

Quite reasonable for its period as a B movie on a small budget. Interesting for sight of the young Lloyd Bridges (who hardly has a line in the whole film) and since it is now appearing on UK Channel 48, where it is likely to recur a few times, giving a chance to see a film rarely available - and certainly in better presentation than is suggested for the DVD in the previous review. One element which may entertain some connoisseurs of incidental detail is the presence of perhaps the poshest cabin boy ever to have gone to sea, presumably straight from an elocution class. Passes an hour pleasantly as a period piece.
