Goofs

There are several shots showing the ship propeller operating only partially submerged. This would be an extremely inefficient method of propulsion. See more »

Quotes

Capt. Edwin Rummill: [Mahia, serving dinner in the officer's mess, is dressed rather provocatively] I suggest that while you're on this ship, you wear something a little less revealing.
Mahia: [Coyly] Does it bother the captain?
Capt. Edwin Rummill: [Capt. Rummill does not respond, merely gives her disapproving looks, then resumes his dinner]

Striking Violence and Visuals at Sea
8 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This B-Movie has a Few Things Going. First it is Off Beat and Surprisingly the Violence is Up Close and Disturbing for a Fifties Film. The On Location and On Board Filming is Authentic and Adds to the Realism. Director Stone seems to be Warming Up for His Masterpiece, The Last Voyage (1960) as it has the Same Setting and Crisp Camera Work and Hypertension.

The A-Listers James Mason and Broderick Crawford, along with Sexpot Dorothy Dandridge (revealing Her charms more than typical for the Era), are OK, but the Rest of the Cast from Stuart Whitman on Down do some Pretty Bad Acting.

This is a Film that is Stark and Quite Different in Tone than Most of the Films from the 1950's and has an Atmosphere of Dread that Works and there are some Scenes at Sea that are Extremely Well Done. Worth a Watch as a Tense Low-Budgeter and to See James Mason doing some Slumming and Swimming. Great Title.
