World War Two drama from Alfred Hitchcock following the tensions that arise in a lifeboat filled with the survivors of a torpedoed passenger ship. Among those seeking refuge on the lifeboat are fashion journalist Connie Porthead (Tallulah Bankhead), tycoon Rittenhouse (Henry Hull), seaman Kovak (John Hodiak), injured stoker Gus (William Bendix), radio operator Stanley Garrett (Hume Cronyn) and a nurse, Alice (Mary Anderson). Their numbers are swelled further when a German, Willy (Walter Slezak), from the U-boat responsible for the bombing is also taken on board. Slowly and subtly, the new arrival begins to influence the actions of his fellow passengers, manipulating each situation in order to manoeuvre the craft towards a rendezvous with his own people. The film was nominated for three Academy Awards for Best Director (Hitchcock), Best Story (John Steinbeck) and Best Cinematography (Glen MacWilliams).
