Considering that movis made by computer was not yet invented at the time of this movie it is still able to compete with new movies, and keeps you holding on to your seat. A most see or have.

Dana Wynter and Kenneth More--I miss them now. Everything they ever did was wonderful. And the men who loaded those giant guns were as brave as anyone could be. When this movie, and later Midway, played in our tiny town's only movie theater, the little speakers behind the screen just went sputter. Nice to see the war movies with subwolfers!

Great widescreen war movie from Fox, with solid performances by Kenneth More and Dana Wynter in the fictional aspect of the script that provides an effective counterpoint to the military excitement. Understated in the British tradition (although largely an American production), the hunt for the Bismarck and Prinz Eugen is described succinctly and portrayed with an eye for balance between set pieces and personal relationships. Miniature and effects work is fine, long before the days of CG effects. Weaknesses are the German admiral's caricature of a Nazi officer and some military protocol that is more American than British, but they don't really detract. Edward R. Murrow plays himself in cameo newscasts, and the screenwriter, Edmund H. North, later contributed to an even more famous Fox war movie--Patton. Director Lewis Gilbert went on to direct two James Bond movies. Recommended.

Churchill said it, or at least one of his doubles said it. This is a dramatization that is factual, filled with historical significance. For we Americans, it is a lesser known battle because most Americans think that WWII began with the attack on Pearl Harbour. More men were lost on the HMS Hood than at Pearl. Did the Germans sink it? Truly, this was an important battle.

Enjoyed the way the historical aspect was handled while mixing a love story into the film. Enjoyed the actual newsreel footage at the beginning of the film concerning the lauching of the Bismarck.
