A Paramount Picture
17 April 2005 | by sbibb1See all my reviews

This film was made by Paramount Pictures during the war for the U.S. Navy. The biggest star in the film is Keefe Braselle, who never was a major star. The film has nice sets and was a bigger budget production for a war training film.

Basically the Navy ship is going into port for a few days of leave and the sailors all wind up getting a venereal disease, all of which could have been prevented had they listened to the ships doctor, or used protection. There is a great deal of nudity in this film, which was never made to be seen by anyone but those in the Navy. It is a gem, especially when you realize that a major movie studio helped to put this film out.
