Synopsis

Terry and her nephew Tommy are shipped from Manila to China after Terry's brother, an army officer, is killed there. Jones, a marine who is frequently in trouble, is sent to meet her and falls in love, but Terry and the hero-worshipping Tommy become disenchanted with Jones when he is thrown in the brig after breaking another service rule. He regains her respect, as well as Tommy's, though, when he and his pal Hogan become heroes during a military action.

Notes

The Daily Variety review and a Hollywood Reporter production chart from April 11, 1938 credit Jack Knapp, J. Benton Cheney and Scott Darling with the screenplay and Frank Adreon, Jr. with the story, while the reviews in Film Daily and Variety list only Knapp and Cheney for the screenplay and Parsons and Logue for the original story. Screen Achievements Bulletin records for the film indicate that the onscreen credits listed Knapp and Cheney for the screenplay and Edwin C. Parsons and Charles Logue for the original story. Darling is credited with contribution to the dialogue, but according to Screen Achievements Bulletin was not mentioned in the onscreen credits. A news item in Hollywood Reporter on March 15, 1937 noted that Monogram had just bought an original story from Adreon, which was to be scripted by Parsons and produced by Ken Goldsmith. A September 16, 1937 news item in Hollywood Reporter noted that Harold Tarshis was to do the dialogue for Parsons' script and that Howard Bretherton was to direct.
