Storyline

A British ship is sunk after an engagement with a German vessel, and the survivors are picked up by the German ship, which has been damaged. When it pulls into the bay of a deserted island to make repairs, one of the British survivors, Seaman Brown, steals a rifle and escapes from the ship, his plan being to try picking off the crew from various spots on the island and delay the ship's repairs long enough for a British vessel to arrive and give battle.

Actor H.G.Stoker who played part of Captain Holt.
14 June 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Brown on Resolution is an interesting film as one of the actors, an Irishman Henry Hugh Gordon Stoker was in World War I the Captain of an Australian Submarine "AE2". In 1915 this submarine was the first to penetrate the mined narrows of the Dardanelles, to enter the Sea of Marmara and after a series of naval engagements was scuttled. H.G. Stoker became a prisoner-of-war where his natural acting talents were used in a number of ways including unsuccessful escape attempts. He left the Navy about 1921 to persue an acting career. He was recalled to active service in 1939. He plays the part of Captain Holt with a certain authenticity.
