This film presents a dramatization of the wartime heroics of naval doctor Corydon M. Wassell (Gary Cooper), who is stationed in the East Indies during a Japanese attack on the USS Marblehead.

Viewer Quote: "This is an engaging film about a quiet hero well played by Gary Cooper - a true story of WWII at its best. DeMille brings the story together with a first rate mix of spectacular action, human drama, romance, and typical GI humor. Even if you don't like DeMille, you'll like this film."
