Sons of the Sea (film)
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (February 2013)|
England, 1939. The head of Dartmouth Naval College is murdered. His successor, Captain Hyde, believes that he was in fact the intended target of the assassination. He soon begins to realise that both British and foreign intelligence agents are at work. He enlists the help of his son, a reluctant sea cadet, to smoke them out.
The film was made shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War, something explored in the themes of the film. Unusually for the time, it was made entirely in colour; it was the only feature film to do so using the Dufaycolor process.
It was restored and shown on BBC television in 2005.
