Trivia

Most navy convoys supplying Britain during world war two were formed in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and crossed the Atlantic under constant threat posed by German U-boats. See more »

Goofs

A crewman states that the mystery vessel must be Danish because the only remaining square riggers are Danish. In fact, Germany also had square rigged ships during this period. One became the American Coast Guard "Eagle" and one the Russian "Tovarisch" as war prizes taken following World War II. See more »

Nice Black & White War Film
29 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoyed this 1951 Black & White film starring Dana Andrews,(Pat Bannon),"The Best Years of Our Lives",'46, where he stars as a fishing boat Capt. in a rather small boat and manages to take along a very young female as a passenger. The gal has to sort of live in a closet on the boat that was filled with all kinds of kitchen junk. Pat Bannon experiences a great storm at sea which causes many problems and then out of the blue, he runs into an abandoned sailing ship. It is War time with the Nazi's and the ocean is filled with submarines. Claude Rains, (Capt. Skalder),"The Greatest Story Ever Told",'65( King Herod), appears as the Captain of a Danish vessel and is like a sheep in wolf's clothing. Enjoyed this mysterious film and the hidden secrets which are revealed in this film.
