James Cagney, Pat O’Brien and Frank McHugh all smile for the camera as they star in this tale of love and camaraderie among ship-mates. Cagney was his usual wise-cracking and punchy self and Pat O’Brien was the straight man for Cagney’s hijinks.
Among the more notable aspects of this film is that this was the first film that Cagney and O’Brien would make together. They would go on to make many more as their on-screen chemistry as best-buddies was evident. Another notable is that the film was shot in Hawaii aboard the USS Arizona — a ship that would sink to the bottom of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
