Marlon Brando and Yul Brynner star in this World War II espionage thriller set aboard a doomed German freight ship. Brando plays a German pacifist enlisted by the British secert service to sabotage the ship and deliver its valuable cargo of rubber into the hands of the Allies.
Brynner is the ships captain, a man disillusioned by the horrors of the war, but duty bound to see his ship safely through its treacherous journey. An excellent film is made even more compelling by the tragic situation of the leading men. Both are victims of circumstance who blindly carry out their duties, motivated not by winning the war, but surviving it.
