A historic time capsule for naval training and also a rousing drama, The Navy Way is an entertaining propaganda film from the World War II era. Set and shot in actual naval bases, the film’s authentic portrayal of the discipline and hard work that goes into being a naval officer is interestingly informative. As well as Navy propaganda, the film is the story of a young roughneck who isn’t interested in military service because he bucks authority and wants to make it big as a prize fighter. But while falling in love with the dynamite looker Jean Parker, the young pugilist learns the value of the Navy and serving one’s country. The Navy Way succeeds in every aspect, thanks to a strong cast and real Navy settings and lifestyles.
