Trivia

The invasion of Denmark by Nazi Germany started on April 9th, 1940 and lasted only 6 hours. The invasion was called Operation Weserubung and the occupation lasted until 1945. See more »

Goofs

When the vessel is sighted, a crewman calls out, " Schooner dead ahead". As the vessel is square rigged, it cannot be a schooner which is fore and aft rigged. No Grand Banks fisherman would ever have made this error because schooners made up a large part of that fishing fleet. 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.
