Storyline

The lazaret ship Britannic is used by England to transport weapons to Egypt. The German secret service wants to show that abuse of the red cross by overtaking the ship and steering it to a neutral port for inspection. The British secret service hear rumors of an operation and places its own agent, Vera Campell, a board, using the false identity of the nanny of the wife of the British Ambassador in Greece. The German plot to overtake the ship fails, so does a torpedo attack by a submarine. Will the ship be captured? Written by Stephan Eichenberg <Stephan.Eichenberg@stud.ch.tum.de>

Quotes

Sara Lewis: Are you a modern woman, Miss Campbell?
Vera Campbell: I don't quite know what you mean, madam.
Sara Lewis: Do you wish to be the equal of men so that you can vote and smoke cigars?
Vera Campbell: If I were allowed to vote, I would vote for a law prohibiting the smoking of cigars.
Sara Lewis: Ah, yes. That would be wonderful. Though I doubt it will ever happen.
Vera Campbell: No. I suppose not.
Sara Lewis: Women have no need to seek equality. We are already superior.

LOL.Some of the previous "reviewers" seem to have forgotten that this TV Movie wasn't intended to be a history class!If you're looking for a documentary on the Britannic this isn't it.If you're looking for a well acted,entertaining hour and half than you might like this movie.I do agree with the person who mentioned the cheesy special effects and some of the cringe-inducing dialoge.
