Sink the Bismarck is a gritty, suspenseful drama released in 1960 and directed by Lewis Gilbert. The film takes place during the Second World War, and is based on true events. In 1941, Germany launched the Bismarck, a fearsome battleship intended to disrupt British supply lines and eventually invade the country. Sink the Bismarck is a dramatic re-enactment of the frantic British attempts to find and destroy the German behemoth before it came dangerously close to land. The Bismarck was much larger than every ship in the British Navy, and was armed with mighty weapons easily capable of piercing the hulls of allied ships. British Captain Jonathan Shepard (Kenneth More), Captain Lindemann (Carl M''hner) and Officer Anne Davis (Dana Wynter) must use all of their intelligence and experience to defeat the Bismarck without losing their own lives or incurring serious losses for the British Navy. Sink the Bismarck includes real video footage from the Second World War, and will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. It should not be missed by history buffs and anyone with an interest in naval history.moreless
