The Ship That Died of Shame
The Ship That Died of Shame Competition

To celebrate the release of The Ship That Died of Shame coming to Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital on September 11th we have 2 Blu-Rays to give away!

The ‘1087’ is a British Royal Navy boat that navigates its crew through the worst that World War II can throw at them. With war over, George Hoskins (Richard Attenborough) convinces former skipper Bill Randall (George Baker) and Birdie (Bill Owen) to buy their old boat and use it for what he persuades them is some ‘harmless’ smuggling to supply the black market.

Soon, however, the crew find themselves mixed up with the corrupt Major Fordyce (Roland Culver) who leads them to transport ever-more sinister cargoes, including counterfeit currency and weapons. As the jobs become more nefarious, the once robust and reliable 1087 begins to protest and frequently breaks down, seemingly mirroring the crew’s descent into the criminal underworld…

Produced by the great Ealing Studios and written and directed by Ealing stalwart Basil Dearden (The Gentle GunmanThe Green Man), this lesser-seen gem Is a notable example of a grittier side to the studio’s output and a welcome antidote to the flag-waving patriotic post-war films like The Dam Busters and In Which We Serve that were so prolific at the time.
