WWII Flag Waving
A typical cheap WWII propaganda movie, but that's not to say it wasn't that bad. Not a great deal of war action until the last 10 minutes of the movie. The target practice scenes using a mobile target on a rail track was historically interesting. Seeing Robert Mitchum was a surprise, as his name did not appear in the opening/ending credits. It goes to show what a small part he plays. The rommance angle of the movie spoilt things a bit. Why do the writers always have two guys fighting over the same woman, when they have only just met her, then propose by the next scene? It would have been much better to stick to the gunnery training scenes, scrub the rommance angle, and have a bit more action.
