I warn you, have a hanky or two close by as you will definitely need them. This is one of my all time favorite films and this DVD is the best edition on the market. Get it!
P.S. -- Despite the tag, Gregory Peck is not in this film.
This is Terremce Stamp's first film...and he got an Academy Award nomination for his role....and the entire cast is equally wonderful.. It
is about GOOD vs. EVIL...and it frustrated me, too...GOOD does not win.
But...I saw it first in 1963...and it certainly prepared me for a lot
of what was to come. Mind you...I always HOPE that GOOD will be
triumphant. I still do! I would say to you...it is good to know
what the alternatives are going to be. This a an exceptional film in
every way. You will not regret buying it and owning it. Of course,
you will still not be able to change the perversity of life. Too bad.
Ustinov, as the Captain must enforce the rules of the Navy - being ruled by his head, rather than his heart. His duty torments him to breaking point. This classic tale is an unforgettable experience, in gorgeous black and white Cinemascope. Black and white very well suits this film about polar opposites.
You also get commentary by Terence Stamp, and Steven Soderbergh.
