4.0 out of 5 stars Command: A heavy Burden.
Hellcats of the Navy is an exciting Submarine movie that is fast paced and believable. The main focus of the film is about how war time command decisions can be very difficult to make, but this serious life and death subject never over shadows the war time adventure and heroics on show. Ignore the overly romantic DVD cover this is a good solid War film.
The DVD...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good 'ol Ronald Reagan
No, this is not a great film. But it is a fairly good one. Reagan commands a sub and makes the kind of tough decisions he eventually had to make in real life as president. God bless Ronald Reagan.

The DVD picture isn't perfect but is acceptable for an old classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underwater trip down Memory Lane, 1 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this old "50's" movie out of curiosity,it being the only film that Ronald Reagan and his wife to be,Nancy Davis ,ever made together,before more important objectives overtook them! Based on an actual event in World War Two,the film suffers from a pretty juvenile script and some dubious special effects,but Reagan must have had some clout,even then,or the Studio did,because the production is introduced by no less than Five Star Admiral Chester W Nimitz,the Commander in Chief of all US Forces in the Central Pacific,during World War Two!.Incidentally,its not about the famous American carrier-borne Grumman F6F Hellcat fighter planes of WW2,its about Submarines!
Having said that,Reagan and Nancy,show themselves to be competent,serious actors,and totally believable too. Nancy particularly,could have done with more of a part,because she is attractive and quietly sexy in a damaged "off centre" sort of way,but it's the script,with its "Boy's Own" story line,which lets them down Worth having as a collectible if only to see the Reagans as they were whern they were young.
