Career-minded first mate James Mason wanted a captaincy in the worst way...and that's how he got it when the line put him in charge of a dingy freighter putting out from New Zealand. It isn't long before psychotic crewman Broderick Crawford is plotting a mutiny...and one with a particularly depraved endgame. Unusual little thriller from Andrew L. Stone ("Stormy Weather") co-stars Dorothy Dandridge, Stuart Whitman, Jack Kruschen. 84 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
