At the start of World War II, Cmdr. Ericson is assigned to convoy escort HMS Compass Rose with inexperienced officers and men just out of training. The winter seas make life miserable enough, but the men must also harden themselves to rescuing survivors of U-Boat attacks, while seldom able to strike back. Traumatic events afloat and ashore create a warm bond between the skipper and his first officer. Atmospheric sea footage.
Note: In 1954, The Cruel Sea was nominated for Oscar for Best Writing, Screenplay (Eric Ambler). During the same year, the film was also nominated for three BAFTA Awards, including Best British Film and Best British Actor (Jack Hawkins).
