Screening of "Lifeboat"­ with discussion afterward

Lifeboat (1944) A remarkable tale of survival at sea from the Master of Suspense. After their ship is sunk by a German U-boat, eight people struggle to survive, in an overcrowded lifeboat. With a story by John Steinbeck, this Hitchcock classic keeps you on the edge of your seat for the film’s entire 96 minute run time. The movie stars the legendary Talluhah Bankhead, supported by William Bendix, Walter Slezak, Mary Anderson, John Hodiak, Canada Lee, and Hume Cronyn. And you will be amazed at how Hitchcock makes his ubiquitous cameo!

    As usual, the film club crowd offered up some great discussion topics and observations. It was great to highlight this often overlooked Hitchcock classic.

    This is a good Hitchcock film, but I think "Abandon Ship!" is much more intense (supposedly based on a true story). Would be great if they showed both. In any case, Lifeboat has some good conflict and interesting dynamics.

      "Abandon Ship" is a good movie and has similar themes, but "Lifeboat" came first, so it has that going for it.
