Storyline

The title is derived from the flag of England's Outward Bound Sea School at Aberdovey, Wales: Mike Merriworth, a Merchant Navy hero of the Korean War returns to England after three years of captivity in Communist hands, his mind confused by brain-washing and indoctrination at the hands of his captors, and accepts a post as an instructor at the Outward Bound Sea School. He is placed in charge of "Nelson Watch," which consists of twelve boys from all walks of British life, including the usual juvenile delinquent, a dictatorial bully and a kid afraid of heights. He is a harsh commander and fails to appreciate some of their problems in light of what he has been through. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Outward Bound
29 July 2012 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Kieran Moore plays a naval officer who has been released from captivity in Korea having suffered brainwashing.It is felt that he would benefit from being in charge of youths in an Outward Bound training camp on the Welsh coast.Much of the film in so far as it relates to Moore and his charges is predictable.It is rather difficult to take some of it too seriously when you realise that Fowler was 29 and Newley 24 when the film was made.Strange how the British cinema often asked actors in their twenties to try and play 10 years their junior.However that aside it is a reasonable film with some good exterior shots in a rather strange looking Eastman Colour.This was one of the last efforts of the ill fated Group 3 production company.
