About the Release: Hobart Bosworth stars as Oscar Krug, a working-class American, who is persecuted for his German ancestry after war is declared. Driven by patriotism, Krug enlists and goes to sea. However, tragedy strikes when his wife (Jane Novak) sneaks aboard his ship and is captured following a German U-boat attack. Krug’s single-minded quest for vengeance against the sadistic German submarine commander (played with villainous fervor by Wallace Beery) leads to the film’s shocking and brutal climax. Bonus Materials Include: the re-edited and re-titled version of the film that was distributed in Russia, outtakes featuring music composed and performed by Stephen Horne, a behind-the-scenes look at the restoration, a featurette spotlighting director Irvin Willat by film historian Kevin Brownlow, an image gallery, and souvenir booklet.
Please note that only Continental United States (excluding Alaska, Hawaii, and the territory of Puerto Rico) entrants are eligible.
And — BlogHub members ARE eligible to win if they live within the Continental United States (as noted above).
