In Hawaii in 1941, a private is cruelly punished for not boxing on his unit's team, while his captain's wife and second-in-command are falling in love.
Future screenwriter Alvin Sargent has a bit part in the film. He was paid $400 for a week's work in Hawaii. Sargent would later go on to win an Oscar for Julia (1977), also directed by Fred Zinnemann.
You certainly chose a lovely spot for our meeting. I've had three chances to be picked up in the last five minutes.
Saluting is done incorrectly - several characters salute by placing the blade of their hand to the center of their forehead, etc.
