Though not in top form, director John Ford and star John Wayne, building on previous and better collaborations in this easy-going (and lazy) adventure set in the Pacific, offering good old fun with the Duke, Jack Warden, Dorothy Lamour and Lee Marvin.

For once director John Ford used his cornball sense of humor in a proper setting.

A so-called fun film aimed at those who find it a hoot when someone gets hit over the head with a beer bottle.

A promising premise, gorgeous scenery and an entertaining performance by John Wayne are wasted in this formulaic and self-contradictory John Ford effort.
