In the Atlantic during WWII, a ship and a German U-boat are involved in a battle and both are sunk. The survivors from the ship gather in one of the boats. They are from a variety of backgrounds: an international journalist, a rich businessman, the radio operator, a nurse, a steward, a sailor and an engineer with communist tendencies. Trouble starts when they pull a man out of the water who turns out to be from the U-boat.

Film Review

After watching my DVD of this movie, I had to go back and watch the scene between Talulah and John when they think that they may loose their lives in a storm. Boy what a kiss Talulah gave him! Do yourself a favor and watch it in slow, slow motion. Talulah was hot!!! I don't think that their was another actress in Hollywood that could have given a better performance. She blew the socks off me as a kid and still does to this day. Hitchcock was very much in his element when he made this picture. Kanada Lee along with all the cast were outstanding! Once in a while, a motion picture comes along that brings reality front and center – WWII was on, ships were being sunk by U-boats, and people were stranded between life and death on LIFEBOATs!!!

I really enjoyed the film Lifeboat. I'm ashamed of admitting this, but I haven't seen a lot of Hitchcock films, but this is defiantly one of my favorites. He is such an amazing director, he can do so much with so little, and make it enjoyable. I thought Constance did really well in this film. She reminded me of my grandmother in a weird way, especially her choice of outfits and attitude. I liked that the movie was based in World War 2, that the Nazi's and German's were involved. The sounds and editing were great. I liked how Hitchcock could capture a moment just by focusing on one point. My grandfather told me that Hitchcock made the film just how Steinbeck wrote it in his novel. Which I thought was great, how many films do you see and say "that was better then the book".

How in the world do you make a 96 minute movie where the entire thing happens on a 30 ft. lifeboat? You commission Alfred Hitchcock to do it. Nope there are no flashback montages or dream sequences. You start with a shipping vessel that's already under water after being hit by a German torpedo, one lifeboat and a fantastic cast including Tallulah Bankhead and Walter Slezak among others and let the story wash over you. Putting the technical challenges aside this was a real feat of movie making from 1944. If you're 9 or 90 you are sure to enjoy Lifeboat.Thank's for reading
