Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

In this Second World War adventure, Dana Andrews plays a Newfoundland fisherman who comes across a sailing ship with its hold full of guns, bombs and torpedoes. Manned by Nazis in disguise, led by the urbane but miscast Claude Rains, it's actually the mother ship for a German U-boat invasion of the USA. Andrews sports sideburns and has Carla Balenda as his leading lady, but neither makes this film any more convincing. Despite director Alfred Werker's dab hand at the action sequences, this is a long haul with few exciting moments to relieve the tedium.
