A Bit Cardboard!,
This review is from: Sink The Bismarck! [DVD] (1960) (DVD)
A rather stylised and simplified dramatisation of the events leading up to the sinking of the Bismarck. A sub-plot of the Director of Operation in the Admiralty (Kenneth More) as an embittered man redeemed by the success of the operation isn't really necessary and more attention could have been paid to the thinking behind the action. Models and modern ships used for the action shots as the original players had already been turned into razor blades. The British WW2 film makers have done better!
