Beware not to confound this film with another one directed too by Vernon Sewell and titled "Ghost Ship", shot in 1952. It's also a sea mystery film.
When I started to watch this one, I first thought that I already saw it a long time ago...But I checked on IMDb and discovered that there were in fact two movies with approximately the same kind of topic.
In the first one, it's about a boat with no one aboard and the enigma around it; and in the latest, the rescue of two men in a row boat, and who mysteriously disappear just after...
The sequence where the two lead characters come into a police station, in France, to complain about someone who shot at them, and where two policemen don't understand what they say, is very amusing. Frenchies are shown as dumbs, but I laughed a lot.
The climax is quite effective. I would say unforgettable.
