A new Captain(Humphrey Bogart) of the rundown USS Caine is at first a taskmaker, then the crew(writer Fred MacMurray, Executive Officer Van Johnson, and Princeton provenance ensign Willy Keith) begin to suspect he is a paranoiac. The question of whether or not to relieve him of his command becomes central. Crisp Technicolor and Steiner’s military score mixed with a lush romantic score give the picture a classic & attractive feel. The acting is superb. Bogart unravels. MacMurray is a genial pseudovillian. The love story is satisfying, and the photography is crisp, heaving blue & beautiful.
