A pretty good film of people coming to share a lifeboat and of the struggle to survive stormy seas, desolate areas and the actions of an untrustworthy companion.

  • Monolith rated this: 4.5 stars out of 5.

A classic WWII pressure cooker from Steinbeck and Hitchcock, with the tension building as the eight captive Allies find the Nazi more and more unsavory. Tallulah Bankhead reminded me of Bette Davis (or was it vice versa...?) On a side note, I'd need a helluva lot more than half a pint of brandy to knock me out if someone was going to amputate my leg with a Buck knife... Look for Hitchcock's ingeniously creative (and mandatory) cameo in a newspaper ad for "Reduco Obesity Slayer".
