Lt. Barney Greenwald: Now you're learning, Willie. You don't support your captain because you like him; you support him because he's got the job or you're no good!


Lt. Barney Greenwald: [sarcastically] Too bad we can't use you as an expert on psychiatry Mr. Keefer, after all, you made the diagnosis.

Facts about

The typhoon referenced in the film and court martial was an actual typhoon known as "Typhoon Cobra," which struck Adm. William F. Halsey's Task Force 38 on 17 December 1944. As correctly stated in the film the actual storm did result in the sinking of three ships - the destroyers Spence, Hull and Monaghan.
Humphrey Bogart's tour-de-force performance in the climactic courtroom scene was so powerful that it completely captivated the onlooking film technicians and crewmen. After the scene's completion, the company gave Bogart a round of thunderous applause.
Despite the accolades and impressive box-office receipts, director Edward Dmytryk felt that the film could have been even better. In "Stanley Kramer: Filmmaker" by Donald Spoto, Dmytryk said, "...it's a disappointment in my career, to tell the truth. I insist it could have been a classic ... but Kramer, who (with Dore Schary) is the most publicity-conscious man in the industry, got high-handed with Harry Cohn, and in fact had to toe the line ... Stanley Roberts' original script was about 190 pages, even without the romantic subplot ... It should have remained that - a three and one-half or four-hour picture - and it would have been more logically developed, the characters would have been further fleshed out. It would have been perfect."
