Description by OLDIES.com:

The story, much of it filmed in Annapolis at the historic United States Naval Academy, involves a midshipman (Powell) who'd rather be a crooner than a sailor and a dance instructor (Keeler) who'd rather not chart a life's course with a navy man. Time and circumstance (including danger at sea during a training cruise) will change all that.

Product Description:

This musical drama stars Dick Powell as the son of an admiral (Lewis Stone), who'd rather sing than go to sea. Through the genteel pressures of Powell's girlfriend and nightclub partner Ruby Keeler, Powell dons Navy garb and becomes a hero. Busby Berkeley had nothing to do with this one; the direction was in the capable hands of sentimentalist supreme Frank Borzage. The Borzage touch was particularly noticeable in a heartrending--but non-maudlin--scene in which Ross Alexander is "washed out" as an Annapolis cadet. SHIPMATES FOREVER proved to be a treasure trove of background music for the Warner Bros. cartoon department.
