Leonard Nimoy Takes the Plunge
27 February 2012 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

After a violent storm off the coast of Baja, California, Mike (Lloyd Bridges) surfaces to discover he has only a life raft to survive on, until hopeful help arrives. Quickly discovering three shipwrecked passengers brings the cast to four. The additions are husband Leonard Nimoy (as Vince) and wife Nancy Hale (as Nancy), plus business associate Russ Conway (as Ed). The three had been on a fishing holiday. As their raft drifts farther and farther out to sea, the quartet grows weak, weary and near death. Days pass and tensions mount, with Mr. Nimoy's arrogance becoming especially problematic. Impressive in spite of a small budget, "The Shipwreck" is a neat survival teleplay by Ellis Marcus. It was the first of several "Sea Hunt" appearances by Nimoy.

****** The Shipwreck (8/2/58) Leon Benson ~ Lloyd Bridges, Leonard Nimoy, Nancy Hale, Russ Conway
