1945, on an old cargo ship somewhere deep in the Pacific ocean: Captain Morton strives to become commander, so he demands the maximum quality of work from his crew, without granting them any freedom or favors - ignoring that they're thousand of miles away from the front. In one word: he drives his crew crazy. They are near mutiny, but no-one dares to do the first step. Until Ensign Pulver plays a prank on the captain that triggers fatal consequences... Written by

The movie viewed by the crew, 'Young Dr. Jekyll Meets Frankenstein', never existed. It was fabricated by matching some newly made shots into existing footage from The Walking Dead
(1936) a 1936 Warner Brothers release starring Boris Karloff
and Edmund Gwenn
. Both Karloff and Gwenn are credited on the screen, as is another actor, Morgan Paull
, who appears in some of the new shots. Paull's on-screen credit reads "And Introducing Morgan Paull as Young Dr. Jekyll". See more
