Corvette K-225 Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P206639~Randolph Scott~randolphscott]] was the star of Corvette K-225, a tribute to the World War II corvette escorts which guided Allied convoys through treacherous Atlantic waters. [[Performer~P206639~Scott~randolphscott]] plays the officer in charge of a Royal Canadian corvette cruiser, dedicated to keeping the troops safe from enemy submarine attack. The focus of the film is a danger-ridden journey from Halifax to Britain, the tension quotient heightened by the use of actual combat footage. Only the romantic triangle involving [[Performer~P206639~Scott~randolphscott]], [[Performer~P83231~James Brown~jamesbrown]] and [[Performer~P58533~Ella Raines~ellaraines]] bogs down this thrill-a-minute war picture. Corvette K-225 was produced by [[Performer~P93764~Howard Hawks~howardhawks]], though the direction was credited to [[Performer~P109037~Richard Rosson~richardrosson]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
