Morning Departure is a military drama and tense psychological study about a British submarine on routine duty that meets a test of character. During maneuvers, the sub sinks to the bottom of the English Channel after colliding with an errant and forgotten mine from the war. Lt. Comdr. Armstrong (John Mills) faces the crisis with indomitable spirit, but the nerves and will of his crew start to fray with many of the sailors injured and others dead. A dozen men are left to mull their fate as the British Navy musters its forces to save the survivors. Also featured in the story is the young sailor who finds claustrophobic pressure growing intolerable. Stoker Snipe (Richard Attenborough) may prove to be the weak link of the crew. The movie is notable for early film appearances by Kenneth More, Bernard Lee and, in a role not listed among the cast, Michael Caine. Directed by Roy Ward Baker, W.E. Fairchild adapted Kenneth Woollard's stage play for the film.moreless
