Summary
A comedy-drama about life aboard a Navy cargo ship in Pacific waters during the waning days of World War II. In the Navy Register it is listed as 'The Reluctant,' but to its crew it is known as 'The Bucket.' The monotonous non-combat duty of a fun-loving crew is enlivened by a feud between the petty, intolerant martinet of a captain and an impetuous, highly-respected cargo officer whose continuous efforts to get a transfer to combat duty are blocked by the captain
