Description by OLDIES.com:

All-American hero John Wayne takes a crew of construction workers and turns them into one of WWII's toughest fighting forces in this action-paced war classic. After having convinced the Army brass to let his civilians bear arms, Wedge Donovan (Wayne) whips his new troops into combat shape. But when he leads his unit in an all-out assault against the Japanese, Donovan is brought up to court-martial charges and must fight for his life on a new battlefield. The Fighting Seabees offers an entertaining combination of strong supporting performances by Daniel O'Keefe and ravishing, about-to-be superstar Susan Hayward; brawling, big budget action sequences; and an Oscar-nominated score.
