Storyline

Ship engineer Jim Taggert is rescued from a torpedoed tramp steamer by Joe Morgan, an American gangster that found New York too hot for him, and has become a fisherman operating from an out-of-the-way island off of the coast of South America. Morgan makes his headquarters at the Halfway House run by the parents of Maria Styx as a bar and dance resort catering to the planters and traders of the island. Taggert finds himself practically a prisoner along with a group of American girls acting as entertainers at the resort. Taggert shadows Morgan in his activities in a remote cove and finds that Morgan is supplying German U-boat commanders with torpedoes, but does not know that Morgan has rigged the torpedoes with clock devices that explode when at sea and sinks the U-boats.

Sink the Bismark
19 April 2008 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

During World War II, gangster Alan Baxter (as Joe Morgan) fishes officer John Litel (as Jim Taggart) out of the Pacific Ocean, after his ship is torpedoed by Nazis. Mr. Baxter explains he has left the criminal world to become a simple fisherman; and, Mr. Litel reveals he has turned in his badge to join the American war cause. Litel suspects Baxter may have joined the Nazi cause. Fisherman Baxter is also adept at attracting women; Jacqueline Dalva (as Judy) and Fifi D'Orsay (as Maria), for example. "Submarine Base" is a dull, predictable attack on disbelievers in the "Four Freedoms". Eric Blore (as Spike) is mildly amusing, offering to prepare tea and crumpets on Baxter's boat.

* Submarine Base (7/20/43) Albert H. Kelly, Alan Baxter, John Litel, Eric Blore
