If you are looking for a film that is intended to rouse patriotism around the stars and stripes, will have you singing along to Yankee Doodle that's in the soundtrack, and want to spend a night delighting in the state of the "union" then this film is for you.
In an attempt to hunt out the communists in Hawaii in the early 1950s HUAC send an investigative pair. John Wayne delivers a good performance, as does Olson (they really do make the all American pair!), but despite his character's best efforts to uncover the 'Reds' in court they plead the 5th ammendment and according to the narrative go free.
What this is is a very good example of an anti communist film, and little else. It is enjoyable watch, however, if only because it made me laugh at some of the more blatant lines of propaganda. something to be taken lightly, and with a large pinch of salt. There is some good (?) hula dancing though!!
