To enjoy this John Wayne's popular action adventure, you'll have to disregard its terrible script and bizarre casting of the Duke as a German sea captain.

Good John Wayne movie, but John Wayne as a German is like Kevin Costner playing Robin Hood. Where is the accent?

Decent if cliched WWII actioner. Lana looks great especially considering she's on a German frieghter for weeks on end, she never less then immaculate! A pleasant time filler.
