The OSCAR® nominated Souls at Sea is released for the very first time on DVD in the UK on 10 November 2008 by Eureka Entertainment. A ship has caught fire and only one lifeboat remains. Now, its captain, Michael Taylor (Gary COOPER) must decide who will live and who will surely die. The story begins at Taylor's trial where he is charged for the murders of the ship's passengers who perished. But what his prosecutors don't know is that he was actually onboard under British secret orders. Unexpectedly, he is awarded a new trial after a representative of the Queen of England steps forward with a detailed account of the tragedy. Next, the real story unfolds, via brilliantly photographed flashbacks, revealing Taylor and his partner's heroic mission to abolish the inhumane business of slave trading. But will the truth be enough to spare Taylor from a life behind bars? With its talented cast and compelling plot, Souls at Sea offers a rare combination of intensity, humour and thrilling action that is sure to please classic film lovers everywhere.

Coop and Raft seem more interested in each other than Francis Dee's nominal love interest: indeed, a note that Coop writes to his friend is accompanied by the kind of romantic music more usually reserved for love letters, though, apart from the odd hero-worshipping gaze from Raft, that's about as far as the film goes down that particular alley.Read more ›
"Souls at Sea" - from 1937 - may not be his Cooper's significant film but it is a most impressive one and he oozes screen presence in every scene. Directed by the redoubtable Henry Hathaway and co-starring George Raft ( in one of his best roles), this is a top notch seafaring adventure with a good story,some thundering action and lavish production values.
