Two Yanks in Trinidad is a 1942 American comedy spy film directed by Gregory Ratoff and starring Pat O'Brien, Brian Donlevy and Janet Blair.[1]

The film was in production when Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese, leading to America's entry into World War II.[2]


Two gangsters have a fight over a woman, and separately decided to join the US Army. While stationed in Trinidad they join forces to thwart a plan by Nazi agents to smuggle oil out of the island.
