    To me it works. It did things many other films maybe didn't do back then. It's not a bad oldie.

    Very much a World War II propaganda film, with a clear message that fighting is the honourable thing - it's way too one dimensional to enjoy.

    A disgraced naval officer returns to service as a lowly minesweeper after Pearl Harbor. This is the typical film promoting the adventurorus life of even a lowly sea man at war, even giving value to the death of such man as heroic. But while it lacks a lot of realism and it is outdated, but it comes with a welcome naïve air of nostalgic romanticism that is usually present in these quasi-propaganda films which were produced towards the end of the Second World War.

    Light World War II film, drama and comedy are mixed effectively. Richard Arlen is fine in the lead role. Short and to the point. Dec ent story. Pretty routine but good.
