An Annapolis Story
Time Out saysBrothers Derek and McCarthy are cadets at the Annapolis Naval Academy. During pilot training they quarrel over the affections of the vapid Lynn (50 min), then patch things up during action in the skies over Korea (35 min). Filmed on threadbare sets, with ill-matched actuality footage stitched in, this was very probably as tiresome to shoot as it is to watch. Several of its perpetrators went on to greater things, though. Besides the director, there's Sam Peckinpah, credited as 'dialogue supervisor' and showing up as a helicopter pilot, fishing McCarthy out of the drink during what might laughingly be called the film's climax.
