Great role for Jeffrey Hunter and a touching love-affair...
...between Hiller and Rennie.
"Sailor of the king" seems to be a lot of fiction. But it is a gripping story of two lovers in WW1 and the adventures of their son in WW2.
I love the beginning of the movie with shy Michael Rennie and the charming Wendy Hiller. Then Jeff comes and takes the command. It is very thrilling to watch him shooting Peter van Eyck who is a famous german actor and plays very well too.
I do not like the ending. It is too unrealistic. >
