Product Description

Legendary filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock (North by Northwest, Psycho, Rope) directed this suspenseful World War II thriller, a remarkable story of human survival. After their ship is sunk in the Atlantic by Germans, eight people are stranded in a lifeboat, among them a glamorous journalist, a tough seaman, a nurse and an injured sailor. Their problems are further compounded when they pick up a ninth passenger - the Nazi captain from the U-boat that torpedoed them. With it's powerful interplay of suspense and emotion, this breathtaking classic is a microcosm of humanity, revealing the subtleties of man's strengths and frailties under extraordinary duress. The stellar cast features the great character actors Tallulah Bankhead, William Bendix, John Hodiak, Heather Angel, Hume Cronyn, Henry Hull and Canada Lee. Lifeboat received three Academy Award nominations for Director (Hitchcock), Best Writing - Original Story (John Steinbeck) and Cinematography, Black-and-White (Glen MacWilliams).

5.0 out of 5 stars NOW ON BLU-RAY: ALFRED HITCHCOCK'S LIFEBOAT + Hitchcock Filmography
By John Fowler on June 2, 2017
PHOTO 1 = Hitchcock's cameo in "Lifeboat"
PHOTO 2 = Reduco, The Sensational New OBESITY SLAYER: In Just Four Months YOU TOO Can Be Slender! The Well-Known Director ALFRED HITCHCOCK says "In just four months I lost 73 pounds due to the splendid new Reduco System!"

"Lifeboat" (1944) was the seventh film in Hitchcock's Hollywood career, and the only war movie he ever directed (not to be confused with spy movies).
The 2017 Kino Lorber Blu-Ray is a reissue of the 2005 DVD from Fox Home Video.
All the bonus features from 2005 have been carried over to Blu-Ray:
-- Audio Commentary by Drew Casper
-- The Making of "Lifeboat" (20 minutes)
-- Still Photos
Plus new Blu-Ray bonus features for 2017:
-- A second Audio Commentary by Tim Lucas
(Drew Casper called it "re-duck-o". Tim Lucas calls it "re-deuce-o", which seems more logical.)
-- Hitchcock/Truffaut audio interview (with the still photos from 2005)
The only losses from the old DVD:
-- The Blu-Ray has the original mono soundtrack; the DVD also had a (fake) stereo soundtrack.
-- The Blu-Ray has English SDH subtitles; the DVD also had Spanish subtitles.
The new Blu-Ray transfer is an improvement over the old DVD.
Not dramatic, but noticeable.

POINTS OF INTEREST:
-- Surprisingly for an action film, top-billing went to the actress Tallulah Bankhead (photo 3).
The 42 year-old Bankhead had not made a Hollywood film since 1932's "Faithless" (aside from a cameo in 1943's "Stage Door Canteen"), preferring the Broadway stage.
Top-billing her after a twelve year absence from Hollywood was a daring move, but it paid off in a bravura performance.
She was cast in the film because Alfred Hitchcock wanted to use "the most oblique, incongruous person imaginable in such a situation".
-- During filming, several crew members noted that Miss Bankhead was not wearing underwear.
When advised of this situation, Alfred Hitchcock observed, "I don't know if this is a matter for the costume department, makeup, or hairdressing." (Source: IMDB)
-- Only nine principal actors were used.
Filmed entirely in an enormous water tank on the Fox lot.
Actor Murray Alper (photo 4) had to withdraw from the film due to severe seasickness.
Replaced by William Bendix.
-- The confined set would seem to rule out the director's's traditional cameo appearance,
but Hitchcock came up with a novel solution:
@ 25:15 into the film, he appears in "before" and "after" pictures in a newspaper advertisement for "Reduco, the Obesity Slayer" (photos 1-2)
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Alfred Hitchcock directed 56 feature films (not counting short subjects).
