| Not bad!
This film is typical of Hollywood low budget films which were made during those halcyon days of the cold war after the Korean war and before we all got embittered by Viet Nam. This is a typical "B" grade, feel-good flick about a chief (Neville Brand) in the Navy who drinks coffee out of a soup bowl and is rough, tough but lovable, lonely and sensitive. He meets the hardened but having heart of gold waitress (Jan Sterling) who sees through the protective veneer of the chief and after a trials and tribs, they retire to an apple farm in Southern California. As a former Naval officer who was active during that time, the Navy scenes, particularly a landing operation carried out from a destroyer, are quite unreal, but this is not a war movie. The theme is peace time and reconciling the lovers with good vibes shared all around. It's not a mind bender-- wasn't meant to be. But, in the context of the time, it was nice to see Jan Sterling and Neville Brand, two very competent character actors, sharing a chance to work and make us feel good. No video listed, so catch it on the late show.
