    What a great movie! Everyone is commenting on Stewart's performance, which was stellar and shows his transition from a freshman actor into an upperclassman. But I liked Young's performance too - I think it was a key role his becoming a star as well. I saw Dennis Morgan and looked for him in the credits - not seeing it, I came here and found that it was indeed him with 1 or 2 lines (without a noticeable brogue) - listed under his first pseudonym, Richard Stanley. He wasn't using his trademark brogue, nor was his great voice put to the test (I'm a Morgan fan, if you didn't notice). Looking forward to the rest of the day with Jimmy.

    I just recently watched "Navy Blue and Gold" with my husband, who is an academy grad. He remembers watching this movie as a teenager, possibly inspiring him to apply. Our son is also a graduate of USNA and I would love to give this movie as a gift. Please bring it out in DVD or Bluray format. Thanks!

    I watched this wonderful movie with my husband and then with my son Eric and his friend Sam who are both Midshipmen and football players at Annapolis. They really got a kick out of it and I enjoyed watching it through their eyes.

    This film, along with "A Yank at Oxford" and "A Yank at Eton," is an excellent example of the heart warming, patriotic films that became so popular in the Depression-WWII era. Centering on three buddies at a Naval academy, the film fosters the ideals of loyalty both to one's friends and one's country. The three main characters are all likable: Robert Young as the confident, amiable athlete, James Stewart in the type of role he made his own: the shy, working class everyman, and Samuel Hinds as a naive, unaffected young man of wealth. Though they seemingly have no similarties, they are bonded together by virtue of being freshmen and together, they ward off the practical jokes the upper classmen try to set up for them. Especially enjoyable are not only the scenes at the Naval academy but at the lovely society home of Samuel Hine's character. The scene between James Stewart and Samuel's sister in the film is particularly sweet. James Stewart gives his classic "Ah, shucks" type of performance, which makes him even more endearing to the girl who's sweet on him. James Stewart, all in all, is the scene stealer in this film. He's especially effective in a rousing scene when he defends his father, who was dishonorably discharged from the Navy. His speech is like a foreshadowing of the type of power he would later bring to the filibuster scene in "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington." The supporting cast is delightful in the film as well. Lionel Barrymore as a football coach and the lovely and always hilarious Billie Burke as Samuel Hind's flighty mother round out a satisfying, pleasant picture that takes viewers back to a proud and sincere America.

    Excellent Naval Academy/Jimmy Stewart film. Anyone who loves the Navy-expecially the Naval Academy will really enjoy this movie. Jimmy Stewart is young, handsome and excellent in this energetic role. My favorite Academy film. Please bring it out on DVD!

    I have never seen this movie and have heard so much about it. Jimmy Stewart is one of my favorite all time actors and since my son is at the USNA, I would love to see it or better yet purchase it.I watch TCM whenever I can as am a huge fan of the oldie classics. Thanks TCM.JoAnna (proud USNA Mom)
