Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde star in this romantic drama directed by Shana Feste.
After a four-year stage run with Fonda as the lieutenant anxious to see military action, this comedy inevitably headed screenwards. Its star, long absent from the screen, preferred Ford as director, but it didn't work, and Le Roy took over. It mattered little, since the cast counts most in this wordy piece. Cagney overacts as the despotic captain - a kind of non lethal Queeg - and the young Lemmon supplies welcome comic relief as the love-lorn Ensign Pulver.
The setting is a supply ship in the war torn Pacific, but there's little action and the piece soon wears out what little welcome it might have had.
