The Big Blockade
Director: Charles Frend
This is the VHS release (see more).
SummaryThis propaganda film, produced by the Ministry of Information, showcases the work of the British Ministry of Economic Warfare. To counter citizens' worries about the U-boat threat, a clip from German newsreels showing U-boats in the Atlantic is followed by assurances that the British and American navies together patrol the seas and are successfully blockading Germany; the point is illustrated with a re-enactment of a U-boat being sunk.
NotesThis film is of the docudrama genre, with famous actors depicting the personnel of the featured Ministry.
