Watch: Hellcats of the Navy 1957 123movies, Full Movie Online – The daring exploits of a submarine commander whose mission is to chart the minefields in the waters of Japan during World War II..
Plot: Future “first couple” Ronald Reagan and Nancy Davis made their only joint film appearance in Hellcats of the Navy. Ronnie plays Casey Abbott, commander of a WW2 submarine, while Nancy portrays navy nurse Helen Blair, Abbott’s off-and-on girlfriend. During a delicate mission in which his sub is ordered to retrieve a revolutionary new Japanese mine, Abbott is forced to leave frogman Wes Barton (Harry Lauter) behind to save the rest of his crew. But Abbott’s second-in-command Don Landon (Eduard Franz) is convincing that Abbott’s sacrifice of Barton was due to the fact that the dead man had been amorously pursuing Helen.

Too often over scrutinized
This film is primarily for Ronald Reagan buffs or for those who want to see Ron and Nancy on screen together. The story centers around an initially unstable relationship between a submarine commander, a nurse, another officer showing interest in her and an executive officer who questions the motives of the commander, both personally and militarily. Is it one of the ‘great’ WWII submarine movies? No. Is it worth a look? Yes. It doesn’t contain the depth or intensity of Cary Grant’s “Destination Tokyo” or Clark Gable’s “Run Silent, Run Deep,” but could be considered comparable to Glenn Ford’s “Torpedo Run.”
Cringy but watch for the Reagans
This movie is pretty awful! The only thing bringing me back to watch it is the chemistry between Ronald Reagan and his wife Nancy Davis. Seeing them both onscreen together makes me smile, and the chemistry they had together makes me smile even more. The simple onscreen time together reflects the intimacy of their relationship that guided them to the white house.
Besides that, the acting, story, editing, and characters are tough to handle.
