The Sea Shall Not Have Them

Postby stuart.uk » June 11th, 2011, 1:23 pm

I saw this film, The Sea Shall Not Have Them, for the first time and was impressed not only by the storyline about the RAF rescue service, but also the cast, Michael Redgrave, Dirk Bogarde, Jack Watling, Bonar Colleano, who were an air crew struggling in a dinghy in the North Sea. A launch out to rescue them with skipper Anthony Steel and Sargeant Nigel Patrick, not to mention several familiar character actors like Victor Maddern and James Kenney. There were also 3 girls waiting at home Rachel Kempson (Redgrave's real wife) Gundrun Ure (She played Supergran in kids 80s show), who was waiting for Colleano and a young Joan Sims, who was about to leave the launches engineer, but changed her mind when hearing about the rescue.

It's been likened to Hitchcock's Lifeboat and to an earlier film about the RAF rescue service with David Farrah For Those In Peril

This is one I'd love to see, Stuart! I'll start looking for it over here. Wonder if TCM has it in the library?
