Legendary filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock (North by Northwest, Psycho, Rope) directed this suspenseful World War II thriller, a remarkable story of human survival. After their ship is sunk in the Atlantic by Germans, eight people are stranded in a lifeboat, among them a glamorous journalist, a tough seaman, a nurse and an injured sailor. Their problems are further compounded when they pick up a ninth passenger - the Nazi captain from the U-boat that torpedoed them. With its powerful interplay of suspense and emotion, this breathtaking classic is a microcosm of humanity, revealing the subtleties of man's strengths and frailties under extraordinary duress. The stellar cast features the great character actors Tallulah Bankhead, William Bendix, John Hodiak, Heather Angel, Hume Cronyn, Henry Hull and Canada Lee. Lifeboat received three Academy Award nominations for Director (Hitchcock), Best Writing - Original Story (John Steinbeck) and Cinematography, Black-and-White (Glen MacWilliams).

"Filled with a sparkling cast of actors representing every possible strata of society beset by a seemingly insurmountable problem, Alfred Hitchcock’s Lifeboat offers the pure pleasure of watching a master director at work."
