Tuna fisherman Joe Morelli (Tom Neal) is Navy Bound in this Monogram programmer. While on board ship, Morelli becomes the fleet's boxing champion. He gives up pugilistic glory to return home, where he tries to help his family out of a financial dilemma. When things prove harder to handle than he'd thought, Morelli endangers his amateur status by signing up for a lucrative professional bout. Veteran stuntman Harvey Parry (who'd performed many of Harold Lloyd's building-climbing antics in Safety Last) has a rare speaking role as Joe's ring opponent. Navy Bound was based on a short story by Talbert Josselyn.
