While the picture behind Brian Cox is of the Loch Ness Monster, the location of the film is actually Loch Morar. The monster there is less famous than Nessie and is called Morag. The Loch doesn't connect to the sea so German U Boats couldn't sail in to it but commando troops were trained in that area during World War II. See more »
Miss McMorrow stated to the captain that her man is in the war in the RAF. To Lewis Mowbray she stated that his ship is sunk for a year ago. Looking at the scenery the story take place at he end of spring or begin summer 194. If Lord McMorrow is in the RAF station on a ship the only aircraft carriers sunk in 1941 were the ark royal and the Audacity but only in late 1941, November and December, If he was on one of those ship she already had received message of his missing. The Ark Royal sank in tow to Alexandria so there should be a list of died and survived personal.
The Audicety sank in December 1941 and could not be the ship he war placed on because the event was only 6 or 7 months for the story took place. See more »

Just to See the Creature Itself Is Worth the Price of Admission Alone!
Oh man! Me and my five year old son saw this movie tonight and we had a rollicking good time..... it started off slow and surprisingly somber ( the kids dad is off at war; he's lonely, sad ).... however, once the water horse itself grows and is released into the loch, the movie turns into magic! Seeing the full-grown Cruscoe rise from the depths of the water had us both wildly cheering out loud, and the scene when the kid rode on his back and went for an underwater sea romp was pure celluloid gold -- beautifully filmed and an AMAZING RIDE!!!! Furthermore, while the "drama" at the beginning lagged, I actually find myself kind of into the anti-war drama towards the end. All in all, a most satisfying night out at the movies!
