Filmed on location in Florida (you can even see the mosquitoes!), The Marines Come Through stars Wallace Ford and Grant Withers as a pair of overaged leathernecks. Ostensibly stationed in the South Seas, Ford and Withers battle over the affections of the fetching Toby Wing. They also foil the plans hatched by espionage agents to steal a revolutionary new bombsight. The direction is in the hands of Louis Gasnier, the man responsible for the immortal Reefer Madness. Throughout its 61 minutes, The Marines Come Through has a mildewed quality, looking as though it was filmed several years before its 1943 release date...which indeed it was.
