Movie Info

Talented special effects and adventure director Michael Anderson (Around the World in 80 Days, 1956) keeps the suspense going in this drama about the wreck of the Mary Deare. John Sands (Charleton Heston) is the captain of a salvage ship that is almost rammed by the apparently abandoned Mary Deare. Sands boards the ship in search of plunder but as it is tossed on the high seas, he discovers a half-crazed captain aboard (Gary Cooper). The captain of the Mary Deare, Gideon Patch, tells Sands his

Big stars and good production values but very dull.

This has all the makings of an Alfred Hitchcock Thriller, and I am told that he almost directed it. Charlton Heston and Gary Cooper combine there talents to make a truly unheard of 5 star film. My biggest surprise was that only 42 other people have review / seen this movie on Flixster. No matter what part of this Universe you are from this is a must see movie. Charlton Heston plays the part of a salvage captain. He finds the Mary Deare afloat on the open seas, right from the start when he boards her the action begins. On board he finds Gary Cooper the only man left on board the sinking vessel, which they save by beaching her on the shoals. Onboard is a mystery cargo, as Cooper believes he was left onboard to go down with the ship for insurance purposes. Though when have a somewhat young Heston, in one scene Cooper was a little old to be floundering around in the water. But this is one of the unheard of greats of old school films. Rent, Buy, Beg, But not steal a copy and sit down on a nice night, unhook the phone and enjoy. 5 stars.
