The mute sailor sharpening his knife.
Loose hook, anchor chain scenes.
Gripping knife fight.
Talky at points.
Same sweet voiced Caribbean singer from I Walked with a Zombie.
Great atmosphere and genuine psychological suspense. Intense script, Val Lewton really worked hard on his films. RKO Radio pictures has a major laurel on it's crown with this one. Film students take note... for the sake of quality cinema goddamn it...
