The Cruel Sea (1953) Poster


Liam Redmond: Watts


  • Watts : [repairing the engine]  Come to see the fun, sir? It won't be long now.

    Morell : Fine, chief, but the captain's a little worried about the noise. Could you do anything to... tone it down a bit?

    Watts : Pretty well finished now, sir. We're just flabbin' up the nuts. Could you hear the hammerin' up top?

    Morell : Hear it? There were U-boats popping up from miles around complaining about the racket.

  • Watts : About the revs, sir.

    Capt. Ericson : es. The builders say slow ahead, 35, half a head, 100. - Try that to start with.

    Watts : Aye-aye, sir.

    Capt. Ericson : If I ring "full astern" twice, it means only you can save me.

    Watts : I'll remember that, sir.

    [turns to leave] 

    Watts : I wonder if we'll ever see action in her. My paper says it'll be all over by Easter.
