Critic Reviews for The Decks Ran Red

All Critics (1)

An enjoyable well-made b/w B-film about a bloody mutiny at sea that's based on a real-life incident that took place in 1905 on the freighter S. S. Berwind.

Audience Reviews for The Decks Ran Red

Routine but one of the few chances to see Dorothy Dandridge in a somewhat substantial role.
