A long awaited DVD only now available, previously only available on VHS. An excellent film, realistic and exciting drama telling the story of the Battle of the Atlantic. The film follows the crew of the Royal Navy Cruiser, HMS Apollo as she departs for her tour doing escort duties in the North Sea.Many of the scenes were filmed under wartime conditions and as to drama of this film. A must see film for those who like a film to be a true depicition of life in the Royal Navy during the war. The film also embodies the true British spirit that was so evident at the time our country was almost on its knees. It leaves you feeling it's great to be British.

5.0 out of 5 stars Convoy 8 Nov 2012
By B&W Fan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a rare british war film by the director Pen Tennyson.He made only a few films before being killed during the Second World War.The story is a classic love triangle played out against the backround of the war at sea.I am looking for more films by this director.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for its Time 11 Sep 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film was made in wartime, and it was inevitable that it should contain a hefty element of propaganda. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed it. John Clements gave a sound performance as the doomed hero (a familiar role for him), and the supporting cast were very good too, including the clumsy and self-important corporal of Marines! In all, I'd say it's very good value.Seapower - Ancient Ships, Early Naval Warfare [DVD]

4.0 out of 5 stars Good storyline 11 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Good story line .. but acted just a little on the 'twee' side of things.

Nicely directed, good acting, and a good cast, all make this a film that is certainly worth watching.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Good period British war film, shows the dark days of the Battle of the Atlantic. Not a huge list of known stars but very well acted all the same. Fits well into my collection of WWII B&W films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic War Drama 17 Mar 2014
By Iain
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love the old films. They just don't make them like they use to. A certain generation of actors produced some of the great classics and this just adds to them.
