A ghostly British seaman (Niven) persuades four members of the American navy to launch an attack on Japanese positions, hoping to redeem his own tattered record from the First World War. This movie was widely panned by the critics and barely achieved any kind of a commercial release. Director John Frankenheimer said in an interview that of all the films he directed this was his least favorite. He said it was the only movie he ever made that he considered "an absolute disaster from beginning to end".
