An American tanker is sunk by a German U-boat and the survivors spend eleven days at sea on a raft. They're next assigned to the liberty ship "Sea Witch" bound for Murmansk through the sub-stalked North Atlantic.

Around the 64 minute mark. Bogart's car has been shot at and has spun out. The first scene shows everyone getting out of the car, next we see the inside of the other car, and then we see (from the side) everyone getting out of his car again. See more »
I have long held a fantasy about this picture. One day, Jack Warner wandered into his studio commissary, noticed all these contract players sitting around drinking coffee and screamed, 'Get 'em all into a movie...NOW!' I submit: Jackie Gleason William Demarest Frank McHugh Wally Ford Peter Lorre Conrad Viedt Judith Anderson James Burke Not enough? OK, how about: Jane Darwell Karen Verne Hansel, the dog Barton McLain All The Ones I Forget
This has GOT to be as fun a movie to watch as any ever made.
Chasing Nazi 'Fivers' through Manhattan...they don't even make it to Brooklyn! Gloves, Humphrey Bogart, and his boys show the Hun they can't do in New York what they could in Berlin. Yes, it's propaganda with a capital 'P'; but its fun with a capital 'F'. One of my favourite Bogart movies.
