Overview

Action in the North Atlantic is solid wartime propaganda with a rather endearing inner lining of left-wing politics, courtesy no doubt of scenarist John Howard Lawson, who based his screenplay on a novel by maritime specialist Guy Gilpatric. While running war goods to America's Russian allies, a merchant marine ship captained by Raymond Massey is torpedoed. The courage of Massey and his first mate Humphrey Bogart serves as an inspiration to the survivors, who manage to navigate their tiny lifeboat to America, where they are lauded as heroes. After only the briefest of compassionate leaves Massey is reunited with wife Ruth Gordon, while Bogart strikes up a relationship with Julie Bishop, the crew is assigned a new Liberty Ship. Despite fears of being torpedoed again, Massey, Bogart, and the other men successfully bring their cargo to Russia, shooting down several German planes in the process. As the Americans are cheered on by the smiling, well-fed Russian seamen and peasants, Action in the North Atlantic fades out, with the voice of Franklin D. Roosevelt actually radio announcer Art Gilmore heard on the soundtrack encouraging a "United Nations" allegiance against the axis. The supporting cast of Action in the North Atlantic includes a young newcomer by the name of Bernard Zanville, whose billing was changed to "Dane Clark" upon the film's release.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
With the twin 1941 successes of High Sierra and The Maltese Falcon, Humphrey Bogart shot to the upper echelon of Hollywood leading men. The former can be found either alone or in Volume 1 of the Bogart Signature Collection, while the latter anchors this more chronologically focused Volume 2. It could be called “Wartime Bogie,” as the four movies beyond Falcon collected here show this formidable actor at his rugged, no-nonsense best, doing his part for the war effort. Across the Pacific (1942), a thriller reuniting Bogie with Falcon costars Mary Astor and Sydney Greenstreet (as well as director John Huston), never quite lives up to its promise but is nonetheless a better-than-average slice of wartime intrigue. In All Through the Night (also 1942) Bogie plays a patriotic gangster who unleashes the forces of New York’s underworld against Nazi terrorists trying to sabotage the war effort. Bogart’s “Gloves" Donahue is practically a parody of the mobster characters he played in earlier pre-stardom films, and his tough-guy kidding is most endearing. Action in the North Atlantic (1943) is just that; a wartime tribute to the U.S. Merchant Marine, here bravely sailing U-boat-infested waters. Passage to Marseille (1944) revolves around the escape of prisoners from the notorious Devil’s Island and their subsequent involvement in fighting Nazis. A bit on the talky side, it’s probably the weakest of the five films in this box, but anything featuring Bogie at this potent stage of his career is worth seeing.
