Movie Info

When ship captain John Sands (Charlton Heston) encounters the Mary Deare, an apparently abandoned ship, on the open seas, he hopes to salvage the wreck. Boarding the vessel, however, Sands finds that the Mary Deare's captain, Gideon Patch (Gary Cooper), is still aboard the ship, behaving strangely and clearly not well. After the damaged craft sinks, Sands and Patch attempt to prove to a court that the ship was sabotaged, but shocking revelations eventually come to light.

    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.
