Warner short has a familiar story but some recognizable stars that make it worth sitting through. The film follows three recruits (George Reeves, Herbert Anderson, William T. Orr) as they go through basic training and have to deal with their Petty Officer (Robert Armstrong). Reeves is best known for SUPERMAN and Armstrong for KING KONG so there are two familiar faces that film buffs will want to see but outside of that this film doesn't have too much going for it. Even by 1940, this type of story was pretty drawn out to the point where people would be scratching their heads and asking for something original. The entire film is pretty much of mockery of everything that would be going on in the Navy and once again Armstrong is playing that moron that he played in countless films. I love seeing him but he just doesn't have much to do here. The Technicolor is the one saving grace and there's a great scene in a library where the colors really jump off the screen.
