In Destination Tokyo 1943, the only military-action film he made during the war, Cary Grant plays Captain Cassidy who skippers his torpedo-laden thunderfish, the U.S.S. Copperfin with courage and resourcefulness as it makes its battle-strewn way from San Francisco to the Aleutians and into the enemy’s front yard. Under the trim, taut direction of Delmar Daves in his directorial debut, John Garfield leads a stellar array of costars as boys-next-door gone to war. Makes a perfect naval companion to Howard HawksAir Force 1943.
