English wartime patriotic documentary
4 March 2000 | by (San Francisco, California) – See all my reviews

Merchant Seamen is an English semi-documentary about the Merchant Navy, made for patriotic purposes during the war. It's of interest for historical purposes only, and for one of the few film scores by classical composer and conductor Constant Lambert, a contemporary and friend of William Walton. Lambert liked film and wrote perceptively about film music. Even so, this score, which includes set pieces such as Convoy in the Fog and The Attack (which is used over footage of a ship being torpedoed) is not among his strongest music.
