You'll Always Remember . . . And Never Forget . . . Destroyer Description

Flag waving story of a new American destroyer, the JOHN PAUL JONES, from the day her keel is laid, to what was very nearly her last voyage. Among the crew, is Steve Boleslavski, a shipyard welder that helped build her, who reenlists, with his old rank of Chief bosun's mate. After failing her sea trials, she is assigned to the mail run, until caught up in a disparate battle with a Japanese sub. After getting torpedoed, and on the verge of sinking, the Captain, and crew hatch a plan to try and save the ship, and destroy the sub.

A great old movie with class actors of the time.  Well made, interesting, great acting, good story and it kept me watching.  I love old movies, there is a certain class about them that is lacking in modern movies.  Well worth a watch if it comes around again.
