MEN OF THE LIGHTSHIP
British Department of Infor- mation Release.
/ \NE of the most pathetic incidents
of this war, the wanton destruction of the unarmed East Dudgeon Lightship by two Nazi planes, is reconstructed in this amaz- ingly realistic "short" feature.
Directed by David Macdonald, of "This Man Is News," it is released by the Department of Information.
In the dense fog over Dover Straits the men of the East Dudgeon Light- ship are awaiting the arrival of the relief crew, when the Nazi planes swoop-machine-gunning and bomb- ing.
It is difficult to believe you are not watching the real lightship and its crew, so natural is the acting of the cast, so vivid the action scenes. Plaza, Globe, Newsluxe, State Theatrette; showing.
