Premiered at the Great Lakes Naval Training Station on March 24, 1944, and the Genesee Theatre in Waukegan, IL, with star Robert Lowery, Paramount contractees Susan Hayward, Phyllis Brooks, Jean Heather, Albert Dekker and director William Berke the following day they all appeared on "The National Barn Dance" radio show broadcast from WLS in Chicago.
In the movie the sailors saluted the petty officer who is a NCO. Only commissioned and warrant officers are saluted. The only exception would be an enlisted Metal of Honor recipient who would be saluted like an officer. Not a goof. Recruits in Navy boot camp must salute everyone except fellow recruits.
