| Chester Morris Makes This One
This WWII story of melting pot recruits -- in this case, bomber pilots -- has all the usual wisecracks, including the one about Brooklyn -- is perfectly ordinary. Chester Morris, who is usually good, is particularly good in this one with his usual straightforward performance. This is the sort of movie that made John Wayne and Randolph Scott superstars, but Morris was a little too old, lacked momentum in his career -- he had already spent too many years in B pictures -- and so never escaped. He would shortly go into the Boston Blackie series and while he would work steadily and well through his death -- right up through his role in THE GREAT WHITE HOPE in 1970 -- his career would not provide many high spots.

Still, if you haven't seen too many movies of this sort, you might enjoy this as much as I did.
