Gary Cooper’s Dr. Wassell is appealing. The story line is compelling enough to make watching this film time well spent. The story of a Doctor, second to discover the source of a major epidemic in China, joins the Navy to care for a group of injured American sailors stranded on JAVA during World War II. This and the quiet heroics of Wassell and other characters makes for a fascinating watch.
