THE FROGMEN: A WWII film of the highest caliber, THE FROGMEN sports fast-paced action and extraordinary cinematography, and earned a well-deserved Oscar nomination for its especially breathtaking underwater photography. Richard Widmark (HOW THE WEST WAS WON) stars as Lt. Cmdr. John Lawrence, who takes command of a team of demolition divers--known as "frogmen"--after the death of the much-loved previous commander. Lawrence's strict rules do not go over well with the men, who are fiercely independent. When disaster strikes, Lawrence gets the chance to earn his stripes in front of his men, risking his life in a dangerous attempt to save the day. The ensemble cast also stars Gary Merrill (ALL ABOUT EVE), Dana Andrews (BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT), and Jeffrey Hunter.
THE ENEMY BELOW: It's Robert Mitchum vs. Curt Jurgens as the commanders of an American destroyer and a German U-boat play a deadly game of cat and mouse. Noted for its underwater effects. THE ENEMY BELOW was directed by musical comedy star Dick Powell, who became a producer/director for feature films and for Four Star Television.
SINK THE BISMARK!: It's spring 1941, and Great Britain is yet to be defeated by the Nazi army, but all of that could change soon. The Nazis have launched their juggernaut battleship, the Bismarck, to close off British supply lines and ultimately invade the country. A counterstrike is ordered, and with an arsenal of ships at their command, Royal Intelligence officers Jonathan Shepard (Kenneth More) and Anne Davis (Dana Winter) fight desperately to destroy the Bismarck. Director Lewis Gilbert delivers a heartfelt docudrama about the courageous men and women of the British navy. Featuring actual war footage and a roller-coaster plot, the film is an unforgettable document of world history.
MORITURI: A tormented German who becomes a spy for the British during World War II is planted aboard a German freighter and must convince the captain to turn his ship over to the enemy. Academy Award Nominations: Best (Black-and-White) Cinematography, Best (Black-and-White) Costume Design.
