User Reviews

Drama set just prior to WWII

Pat O'Brien and Constance Bennett are among 15 passengers aboard a freighter traveling from England to the U.S.A. During the trip England enters the war and when confronted by a German submarine the captain of the ship must decide whether to fight. The film is just okay. I rated it 5/10.
