Storyline

Jimmy Butler, the star-quarterback on the football team for the U. S. Naval Academy has no intention of following his father, a career Marine officer, into the service following graduation. He has already signed a contract with "Curly" Maxwell to play professional football. But Marine Lieutenant Henry Dolan, an aide to Colonel Butler, tricks Jimmy into going to the San Diego Marine Base to tell his father he plans to resign his commission. But Colonel Butler is on temporary duty on a Philippine island in the pursuit of a gun-running gang of smugglers. Which, through more trickery by Dolan, is where the newly-commissioned Lt. Jimmy Dolan ends up. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Don't Tell It To The Marines!
23 April 2019 | by museumofdaveSee all my reviews

This is a sort of Boy's Own Adventure concerning a stubborn lad who has an opportunity after his years at Annapolis to choose between becoming a wealthy and cherished gridiron giant or following in his father's footsteps and becoming an officer in the marines. Richard Cromwell, still struggling with possibilities of stardom, having made a strong impression in 1930's Tol'able David, was handed secondary roles in Lives of A Bengal Lancer, This Day and Age, and Poppy, but never quite made a strong showing as a star, regardless of his handsome and graceful mien, and this foray into golly-gee heroics is strictly Saturday matinee stuff; although he has the lead role, the plot is completely predicatible, and although Cromwell is seconded by some significant character actors, including Leon Ames, Marsha Hunt and Edward "Timothy Mouse" Brophy, this is not the sort of film to burnish a resume.
