Re: Movie “A Gift Horse” Great Movie!
GIFT HORSE, made in 1952, released in US under the name GLORY AT SEA. HTH
I can't find any info on IMDB about a movie by this name. Is it brand new? Is it from the 40s?
Does it have a different name in USA?
If you can mention an actor that was in it, I could use that name to look it up.
Concerns the transfer of the 50 4 piper destroyers to the Brits in 1940 and the ultimate destination of one DD. I must say I really did enjoyed the movie. Acting, the relationships between characters and plot was excellent. Without need for special effects I thought it surpassed Greyhound ( The Good Shepherd book was better) .
There is even a hull painting scene and some good shots of a 4 piper. On Amazon Prime.
