"Pull yourself together Stokes" *slap* "Thankyou sir I needed that"
John Mills is superb as the indomitable submarine captain who leaves his wife and baby for a routine patrol. Richard Attenborough excels as the young sailor who cracks under pressure.
A wonderful film which may have started as a play. Well formed with portrayals which are both intimate and skilful. The "character" actors are enjoyable and colourful as the submarine sets sail, all leading to heightened drama when tragedy strikes.
If you like British black and white films about stiff upper lips and devotion to duty, you cannot do better.
God save the King.
