Edward G. Robinson is the salty of veteran who helped build a destroyer and is now sailing on it, and mightily unhappy at the new ways of the officers and crews. The fact is that the destroyer is a piece of shit, falling apart almost before she slides down the timbers and into the water. But through pluck and luck, they manage to operate the leaking old tub, shooting down six Jap planes and sinking a sub. All very routine, unlikely, and intended solely to boost the morale of U.S. Navy forces during some the dark days of the war.
