Notwithstanding some explicit anti-Japanese sentiment, crew rough-housing, and longings for home that feel a touch sappy in today's unsentimental world, "Destination" stands as a first-rate propaganda picture, released at a time when we needed it most. Grant is fabulous playing against his usual well-tailored image in a modern war movie, one of his few. His Cassidy is steady but human — a born leader. His crew is also tops, with young star-to-be John Garfield a stand-out as a female-crazed sailor aptly dubbed "Wolf." The movie only improves the closer we get to Japan, and the outcome of the sub's delicate and dangerous assignment becomes clearer.
