Widmark & Poitier a winning team!

by Don Phillips ( on 4/20/2007

This is one of the finest examples of how to make a movie that will hold you on the edge of your seat. A superb cast headed by Richard Widmark as a man 'on the edge' of his situation. Sidney Poitier as the newsman with a camera in the wrong place at the wrong time. The supporting cast is just as top notch. A minimum of special effects, Use of an actual warship of the post WWII era. Excellent cinematography, not to mention dynamite direction, makes this a must see for cinema fans, war movies or not. They don't make 'em like this any more. Read More

Editors Note
Note At the peak of Cold War tensions, a U.S. naval ship discovers a Soviet submarine in the North Atlantic and proceeds to scrutinize its every move. As the crew's Captain Findlander pushes forward intensely, relations between members become strained and a battle of wits ensues. Sidney Poitier plays an unforturnate reporter who goes along to interview the captain, but instead gets more of a story than he'd wanted as the drama builds to a heightened climax. Richard Widmark is powerful and determined as the captain with shattered nerves.
Uncut "Terse, serious suspense." 01/01/2005 p.163
