Freedom of the Seas (play)

Freedom of the Seas (play)

"Freedom of the Seas" is an English play by Walter C. Hackett, adapted as a 74-minute film in 1934. The film was directed by the French director Marcel Varnel (his first film in Britain) and the play adapted by Roger Burford, and is also notable as the first film credit of David Lean, as focus puller.


The film is centred on Smith, a mild-mannered clerk who unexpectedly becomes one of the first among his colleagues to sign up on the declaration of World War One. Undashing but courageous, he foils a German sabotage plot.
