Superb movie ww2 convoy duty
__Bogart, Raymond Massey and other great character actors are very entertaining in this historically accurate account of US involvement in "getting the goods" to England and Russia during ww2. Considering how lightly armed our big liberty ships were, it's surprising how many made it thru the many German Luftwaffe and submarine wolfpack attacks. Many years after the war, our merchant marine was finally recognized for their heroic efforts in defending liberty ships and other shipping. Of course, it's difficult to find a bad Bogey movie....and in my opinion this is almost as good as "To Have and Have Not" with a very young and lovely Lauren Becall.
