REVIEWS

Review by anonymous (posted on 21-Aug-2006)

I grew up in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada (born in 1930) Halifax Nova Scotia was the great North Atlantic Convoy Port (RCN-RN Convoy Numbers of ships proceeding fom Halifax NS started with the Prefix HS. Action In The North Atlantic is an excellent deciption of those days (1942-2945) my Father was a Certified Marine Engineer and sailed on many prewar merchant ships. although I think Director Hawks had a "Liberty Ship" or "Victory Ship" in mind. Hawks also directed another film about the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN/RCN VR) called Corvette K-225 which was partially made in Halifax NS, stared Randolph Scott and featured a very young Robert Mitchum. Several of our family were in the RCNVR and were decorated for commanding ships which fought German U-Boats at Sea. Commander James Fraser Distinguished Service Cross (DSC) Lt.Commander Breen Young OBE MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire). One of Bogart's best films, and Raymond Massey was equally excellent as was the entire cast, Dane Clark, Julie Bishop, Alan Hale. This film should be preserved in the US Merchant Marine Academy and the Library of Congress.a Liberty Ship of the period "The John W. Brown" at the Port of Baltimore MD has been fully restored and visits Halifax NS from time to time, as well as New York and Boston.
