Plot:

In the English Channel John Sands, captain of a small rescue ship, finds the freighter Mary Deare drifting. Although there's only a little fire, the whole crew seems to have left the ship. John's already looking forward to a large salvage fee, but then he finds first officer Gerald Patch still on board, who sends him away. Although he doesn't understand yet what happened on the Mary Deere, Sands allows Patch to persuade him not to talk about what he saw on board and to drag out the official investigation of the incident.

Trailer:

Wreck of the Mary Deare is really Cooper's film. His performance is wooden but is possessed of a fanatic determination that carries through and works. Heston's role, that of the Devil's Advocate, is well played, :applause: although there is little to work with in terms of character.
....
All in all, the film is good. :thumbsup: Given the lack of depth found in both the screenplay and direction, it is about the best it could have been.



:cheers:

Was there ever an official release for this film on DVD? I see some copies on Ebay, it says it's region 1, but when I google it I can't find any info at all of a previous release.

Up to this moment, I cannot find any offical release of this movie in a single DVD. However, this movie with 4 other Cooper's movies (Springfield Rifle, Dallas, The Fountainhead, Sergeant York) are in a DVD Box-Set called Gary Cooper: The Signature Collection (Region 1). Each movie is in one single DVD. There are 5 DVDs inside the Box-Set.

I got my copy in amazon.com. I enjoyed all of them in the Box-Set. :popcorn:

:cheers:

Would love to have it, too bad it's in a box set and not in a separate DVD case. Makes it hard to put it with the rest of the Heston movies.

Yes, I hate that too. BAD FOR EACH OTHER has been released in boxset in America, with three other film noirs, and AIRPORT1975 was only released in an AIRPORT boxset in the United Kingdom.

Luckily, at least in Sweden, the box set comes with separate cases/covers for each DVD. But it does suck that you have to buy the complete set just to own the one movie you want.

Yes, its a rip-off. The Heston boxset was very disappointing, all the movies in it were already readily available, like THE TEN COMMANDMENTS and THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH.

I hate it when companies do that. Just another way to squeeze some money out of the fans instead of spending a little money by putting out movies without a current release.
