I enjoyed this minor film about the ship my uncle served on.
I was able to see this movie years after my uncle told me about his ship with the steam engines. I believe this was the first movie for a few of the cast who later became well known names. The ship was nicknamed the "Tea Kettle" and I believe the crew did have a morale problem. The cast, at least, made a huge effort to entertain.
