They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Good day Members of the Seven Seas Club,

 

Our next movie night, Wednesday 24 October, will, by popular request, see the re-screening of the classic film “The Cruel Sea”. Start time is 1830; the run time is 126 minutes. The Cruel Sea is a 1953 British war film (monochrome) starring Jack Hawkins, Donald Sinden, Denholm Elliott, Stanley Baker, Liam Redmond, Virginia McKenna and Moira Lister. The film, which was made by Ealing Studios seven years after the end of the Second World War, was directed by Charles Frend and produced by Leslie Norman. It is based on the best-selling novel by former naval officer Nicholas Monsarrat.

 

The film portrays the conditions in which the Battle of the Atlantic was fought between the Royal Navy and Germany's U-boats. It is seen from the viewpoint of the British naval officers and seamen who served in convoy escorts. This is a story of the Battle of the Atlantic, the story of an ocean, two ships, and a handful of men. The men are the heroes; the heroines are the ships. The only villain is the sea, the cruel sea, that man has made more cruel...

Soup and Bread will be served at the intermission. 

 

Yours aye,

 

Glen Marlow

(Club Manager)
