REVIEWS:





"That old master of screen melodrama, Alfred Hitchcock, and
Writer John Steinbeck have combined their distinctive talents in
a tremendously provocative film—indeed, a surprisingly unique
one—titled 'Lifeboat,' which came to the Astor yesterday. With
only nine characters under scrutiny within the limits of a standard
ship's lifeboat—an area from which the camera never at any time
departs—they have peeled off a tense and vital drama of survivors
adrift from a torpedoed ship, absorbing in its revelations of
character and its brilliantly pictorialized details. .... All of
the performances are extraordinarily fine. .... Mr. Hitchcock
and Mr. Steinbeck...have turned out a consistently exciting
and technically brilliant drama of the sea."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; January 13, 1944
