Two Yanks in Trinidad is a 1942 American comedy spy film directed by Gregory Ratoff and starring Pat O'Brien, Brian Donlevy and Janet Blair.[1] Two gangsters have a fight over a woman, and separately decided to join the US Army. While stationed in Trinidad they join forces to thwart a plan by Nazi agents to smuggle oil out of the island.

The film was in production when Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese, leading to America's entry into World War II.[2]
