365 Movies: The Frogmen Review

The Frogmen stars Richard Widmark, Dana Andrews, and Gary Merrill in this 1951, Lloyd Bacon film.Trying to gain respect from his crew of men, Lt. Cmdr Lawrence(Widmark) comes off more cold-hearted and stand-offish, than being able to relate to his men. The leader of the men is Jake Flannigan(Andrews), who immediately doesn't like him, and when he doesn't like him, the rest of the guys don't either. It's a really interesting film, with an absolutely stellar cast. Although, I prefer to see Widmark as a gangster, I thought he was marvelous as the Lieutenant Commander. It may have been an hour and 30 minutes long, but it really felt longer than that.
