Movie Summary

Rating:
Not Available
Hellcats of the Navy is a 1957 black and white war film directed by monster movie maestro Nathan Juran (The Deadly Mantis, 20 Million Miles to Earth, Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad). The story centers around an initially unstable relationship between a submarine commander, a nurse, another officer showing interest in her and an executive officer who questions the motives of the commander, both personally and militarily. Former President Ronald Reagan is very good as the straight, correct Captain Casey Abbott and it's a hoot to see Ms. Reagan, Nancy Davis professionally called, play alongside him as Nurse Lt. Helen Blair. Casey's Executive Officer, Dan Landon, clashes with his skipper but by a twist of fate finds himself having to make a very similar decision. Will he call the plays differently? On one level a simple war action movie, this film is also a commendable study in the morality of leadership.
