As a tribute to Robbie’s late father, this week the boys look back at his favourite film – the 1953 Ealing Studios masterpiece ‘The Cruel Sea’. Often cited as one the the best war movies from that golden age of 1950s British cinema. Directed by Charles Frend, based on Nicholas Monsarrat’s book and starring Jack Hawkins, Donald Sinden, and Denholm Elliot, the film documents the wartime service of a Royal Navy corvette and her crew during the battle of the Atlantic. Brutal, hard-hitting, and timeless, join us to find out why we love this film so much.
