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.

Britannia rules the waves.
10 October 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Pre-WW2 propaganda piece proving that the British people have the sea in their veins and courage in their hearts. Sentiment and nationalism are laid on thickly and there are many special treats for those who enjoy watching model warships floating in a bathtub while pretending to shoot each other.

I doubt there'd have been a dry eye in the house during the 1930s but today you've really got to be in the mood for this kind of thing to rise above cliche. If you could happily watch "Mrs Miniver" or "Goodbye Mr Chips" tonight, then you're already in the right mood.

John Mills in one of his first starring roles gives a genuinely excellent performance as a heroic British naval seaman.
