Movie Info

After World War II, veteran George Hoskins (Richard Attenborough) persuades his skipper, Bill Randall (George Baker), to use their old naval ship for a small-time smuggling operation. But the nefariousness of their activities soon increases, and the men begin shipping dangerous weapons. Around that time, the ship begins to revolt against the veterans that it led through the war, breaking down at inopportune moments, almost as if to express its disapproval.

Critic Reviews for The Ship That Died of Shame

All Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • If the direction, by Messrs. Relph and Dearden, is not exactly inspired, it leads us smoothly from glory to disgrace, missing the shoals of the supernatural with considerable adroitness.

Audience Reviews for The Ship That Died of Shame

  • Dec 27, 2019
    An interesting curio, sort of a British Twilight Zone, about how a once dutiful small craft British warship (like an American PT boat) is used to smuggle (gasp! oh no!) in the financial doldrums after WW2. Can the creeping sense of vengeful karma be far behind her? It's all done very workmanlike, with only hints of naval superstitions lurking in shadows beneath the decks. Veddy British feel all about the work as well.
