    1943 . 1h 49m . Drama . TV-G
    Since it was made in 1942/43, the plot line was pure fiction but, if you substitute October 25, 1944, and insert Taffy 3, as the formation under attack, the defensive strategy and the Pit Bull aggression, of the US Navy destroyers, is eerily similar. You can almost hear the Twight Light Zone theme.
