Greetings all! My first time here. I'm a fairly regular poster over at the WWII forum
(World War II Forums
) which is quite an excellent forum with quite a few WWII experts. Unfortunately, there are only a couple of really excellent film buffs over there, so here I am!
I'm looking for a film I saw once, fairly recently (within the past year or so) on TCM I think. The film was, perhaps, made during WWII, but I may be mistaken about that. The film is about a crew of merchant seamen who are given the chance to crew a Q-ship (as I remember the plot). They're THRILLED at the idea of getting back at the nazis, and do so eagerly. The film may be American or British (unsure which, sorry), but I seem to remember them having some serious success with their Q-ship before the problem arises: As I recall, the problem is that they TRY to sink a U-boat, but fail for whatever reason, and then run into the SAME U-boat again, and the German captain remembers them . . . or something sort of like that.
That's all I've got. Sorry. I really hope one of you film experts can identify this one for me; it's been making me NUTS!!
