CLOCK STRIKES NINE

I'm afraid the judge decided against it. What have you been doing? Busy day?

0:01:070:01:14

I was in the British Museum - textual criticism, Shakespeare.

0:01:140:01:19

Bacon. Bacon, my foot!

0:01:190:01:23

Dr Johnson said that if Bacon didn't write Shakespeare, he missed a great opportunity.

0:01:230:01:29

My dear chap, could Bacon have written, "Be not afeard, the isle is full of noises,

0:01:290:01:36

"Sounds and sweet airs that give delight and hurt not, sometimes a thousand twangling instruments..."?

LOUD EXPLOSION IN DISTANCE

Later than usual.

0:01:580:02:01

Somebody's signalling.

0:02:010:02:04

Better give them the plot.

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:03:280:03:31

Hello, Skipper! Something here.

0:03:450:03:48

Dead as mutton.

0:04:000:04:02

< Looks like a suicide job.

0:04:020:04:05

Torch.

0:04:130:04:16

.38 Webley revolver.

0:04:230:04:26

One round fired.

0:04:270:04:30

"Oscar Burrell."

0:04:380:04:41

LAUGHTER

0:05:160:05:19

Don't tell us you'll think of it on the way home!

0:05:240:05:29

This is the tale of Queenie Feather, fire watch in all sorts of weather!

0:05:290:05:34

But being rather scared of bombs, she made herself some tin-lined coms

0:05:340:05:39

Soppy thing! So went on duty unafraid, tin hat, tin coms, bucket and spade!

0:05:390:05:45

One night on hearing the alert, she filled her bucket up with dirt

0:05:450:05:50

Then scudded up the attic stairs to stand among the falling flares

0:05:500:05:55

Well, just as she was feeling tired, an anti-aircraft gun was fired

0:05:550:06:00

And as the shell went whizzing past, the tin coms couldn't stand the blast

0:06:000:06:06

And though poor Queenie tried to duck it, she fell head first in her bucket!

0:06:060:06:13

Aren't I common?

0:06:130:06:16

So holding her...courage in her hand,

0:06:160:06:19

she stood like an ostrich in the sand

0:06:190:06:21

The shell which bent Queenie double landed a Jerry plane in trouble

0:06:210:06:26

As the pilot shouted, "Here I come!" it landed on poor Queenie's back

0:06:260:06:32

The tin coms acted like a skewer and Hitler's air force was one fewer

0:06:320:06:37

Now like a soldier of the line our Queenie is a heroine

0:06:370:06:41

The George Medal awarded, the Mayor to give it, and for the coms, a golden rivet!

0:06:410:06:48

WHISTLES AND APPLAUSE

0:06:480:06:51

-I'd almost given you up.

-Would you rather I went home?

-No, but it's hard to keep a table.

0:06:560:07:03

I say, look who's blown in!

0:07:050:07:08

< Sally from Unter den Linden!

0:07:080:07:11

She has the nerve to come here! Not so loud.

0:07:180:07:22

I thought you promised to ship her out to Canada. When?

0:07:220:07:27

That's a question you don't ask. Why can she leave the country?

0:07:270:07:31

Put her into Brixton Jail with all the other 18Bs!

0:07:310:07:36

Ladies and gentlemen, you've all heard me recite Dreaming Of Thee.

0:07:360:07:41

I'll now give you the latest version which I've dedicated to a young lady whose name for the moment escapes me.

0:07:410:07:50

Dreaming of thee, dreaming of thee

0:07:520:07:55

Dreaming of her Fuhrer love she be

0:07:550:07:58

She went to see old Hitler down the famous Wilhelmstrass'

0:07:580:08:03

He rose to greet her, then sat down, then jumped up, what a farce!

0:08:030:08:08

He'd sat down on his Iron Cross which, structurally, being brass...

0:08:080:08:14

Now she's dreaming of her darling love, of him.

0:08:140:08:19

APPLAUSE

0:08:190:08:22

Was her journey really necessary?

0:08:230:08:26

Sally, do you think you're wise in staying?

0:08:450:08:49

I came for a good reason. I won't be driven out by a few cheap jibes that amuse halfwits!

0:08:490:08:56

I hope that I'm the good reason, not the halfwit.

0:08:560:09:00

Let's dance.

0:09:000:09:03

-Why not ditch them and have a real birthday party?

-Jimmy, it's not your birthday.

-Won't matter. Come on.

0:09:070:09:14

All right. It's a date.

0:09:140:09:17

-Sir, Colonel Hargreaves wishes to have a word with you.

-Colonel Hargreaves?

-He's at that table.

0:09:170:09:24

-George, will you have the waiter send up another bottle?

-With pleasure.

-Be back in a flash!

0:09:240:09:31

Here he comes.

0:09:370:09:40

-Hello, Colonel. Mrs Hargreaves.

-Congratulations, Jimmy. I suppose one mustn't ask what it's for.

-No.

0:09:400:09:48

-You wanted to see me, Colonel?

-Yes. Excuse me, my dear.

0:09:480:09:52

I've been searching for you all day.

0:09:520:09:55

-I've been doing some celebrating.

-I've got an important job for you.

0:09:550:10:00

-You're leaving for Canada tomorrow night.

-Tomorrow night?

-I'm afraid so.

0:10:000:10:06

I should have stopped her from coming in, but her friend had already booked a table and he's a very good client.

0:10:140:10:21

George, it wasn't your fault. Thank you very much.

0:10:210:10:25

Her father an Admiral, her mother in the Red Cross, her brother and sister in the Navy!

0:10:250:10:32

Something's fishy. She's trying to draw attention to herself.

0:10:320:10:36

LOUD EXPLOSION

0:10:360:10:39

-Do you want to go down to the shelter?

-Do you?

-No.

0:10:390:10:43

I'm quite happy where I am.

0:10:430:10:46

-No-one's to have an inkling of what you're doing.

-I understand.

0:10:460:10:51

You must keep her under close observation. It needs initiative and courage. You're the man for the job.

0:10:510:10:59

-Thank you, Colonel.

-There she is. Take a good look at her.

0:10:590:11:03

I had a good look at her. Everybody has!

0:11:030:11:07

What time did I arrive here?

0:11:070:11:09

It was pretty late. I wondered what had happened to you.

0:11:090:11:14

I had an appointment. It kept me later than I expected.

0:11:140:11:18

Oscar Burrell. Couldn't be suicide if he was signalling.

0:11:180:11:23

-The report reached here at 9.04.

-PHONE RINGS

0:11:230:11:27

-You were at the location...?

-9.09.

-Rigor mortis had set in. There must be someone else in this.

0:11:270:11:34

-They hit Buckingham Palace.

-Were Their Majesties...?

-In the country.

-Thank God for that!

0:11:340:11:41

Bad news? The news is all bad.

0:11:420:11:45

And will be for months until it gets better.

0:11:450:11:49

Another bit about Sally. Dragging our name through the mud! Leave it there.

0:11:490:11:57

A mistake. A great mistake ever letting her go to Germany. My fault.

0:11:570:12:04

'London in der vergangenen Nacht von der Luftwaffe angegriffen.

-Thank you.

0:12:170:12:23

'..ein wichtiges Gebaude in London erhielt einen Volltreffer.'

0:12:230:12:28

Sometimes I think it was my fault for ever having produced her. Betty!

0:12:280:12:34

-Hello, Mother!

-Darling!

0:12:340:12:36

-Hello, Dad.

-Good to see you.

0:12:360:12:39

-How long have you got? >

-48.

-Where were you?

-The other end of nowhere! Nothing to eat for ages.

0:12:390:12:46

-You must be starving. Have a cup of coffee.

-I'd love one.

0:12:460:12:51

-Miss Betty!

-Reynolds, how are you?

-In exceptional health.

0:12:510:12:55

-What's that? Scrambled eggs?

-Dehydrated.

-They look all right.

0:12:550:13:00

-They have a resemblance to scrambled eggs. May I help you?

-Thank you.

0:13:000:13:05

-It's grand to be home.

-One saccharin or two?

-One, please.

0:13:050:13:09

-Betty, what are you doing here?

-48 hours' leave. Do you mind?

0:13:090:13:14

-Morning, Mother.

-Morning, my dear.

0:13:140:13:17

-Morning, Dad.

-Eh? Oh, morning.

0:13:170:13:20

-Are those eggs real?

-Quite real, but not the old-fashioned sort.

-Toast and butter for me.

0:13:200:13:27

Margarine, Miss Sally. There you are, Miss Betty.

0:13:270:13:31

Plenty of butter and eggs in Canada.

0:13:330:13:36

-Won't that be nice?

-Betty, dear!

0:13:360:13:38

Sorry, Mother. This is an occasion. Sally's last breakfast before her departure to the land of plenty.

0:13:380:13:46

-And safety.

-Won't you be glad, all of you?

-The post, my lady. >

0:13:460:13:51

Thank you.

0:13:530:13:56

It's from Jack. He's all right.

0:13:580:14:01

-What does he say?

-Wait a minute, dear. Wait a minute.

0:14:010:14:05

Listen, everyone. He says, "Unless you're very careful, you will have a DSO in the family."

0:14:080:14:15

A DSO? By Gad, that's fine, that's splendid! That's pretty good.

0:14:150:14:21

You're not excited about your brother's decoration.

0:14:210:14:25

I've just got one of my own.

0:14:250:14:29

"A canary is a yellow bird." More humour! Exhibit A!

0:14:300:14:35

-You've earned it!

-Well, I've got it.

0:14:360:14:40

-We used to be a happy, united family.

-We're not now and what's the use of pretending we are?

0:14:400:14:47

Family or no family, Sally's behaving disgracefully!

0:14:470:14:51

-May I have some coffee?

-Yes. Oh, have another cup.

0:14:510:14:56

You think it's fun to be the sister of the notorious Sally Maitland?

0:14:560:15:01

So I'm spoiling the fun of your little game of tin sailors!

0:15:010:15:05

That's a rotten thing to say.

0:15:050:15:08

Men and women in uniform and out of uniform fighting the foulest thing that's happened in the world

0:15:080:15:16

-and you behave without decency or patriotism!

-You forget. I've lived in Germany.

-How can we forget?

0:15:160:15:23

-I know what's happening there.

-And what they're fighting for?

0:15:230:15:28

-Girls!

-What are YOU fighting for?

0:15:280:15:31

Amongst other things, freedom.

0:15:310:15:34

Does that include freedom of thought and speech and action?

0:15:340:15:38

You want everyone to think as you think. English hypocrisy!

0:15:380:15:43

Oh, really, Sally!

0:15:430:15:45

News Standard! Buckingham Palace bombed!

0:15:500:15:55

-Shall I keep your parents informed of your whereabouts?

-I don't think they'll be interested.

0:15:550:16:02

-Final blow-up, eh?

-The blow-up to end all blow-ups.

-I'm sorry, Sally.

-Don't worry, I'm not.

0:16:020:16:08

'The 7.35 train for Liverpool will leave from Platform 13, calling at Crewe...'

0:16:080:16:15

-I suppose you'll be glad to get away.

-I shan't be sorry.

-I hope you'll find things pleasanter over there.

0:16:150:16:23

-I expect my reputation will have preceded me.

-I'm afraid it has. Here we are. Thank you.

0:16:230:16:29

-Your trunk's in the van. Would you like an evening paper?

-No, thanks.

0:16:300:16:35

Does this train go to Liverpool? Yes. Thank you.

0:16:350:16:39

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:16:450:16:48

-Goodbye, Colonel.

-Take care of yourself.

0:18:230:18:26

-Are you all right?

-I'm quite all right, thank you.

0:18:260:18:30

That was a near miss. Tickets, please.

0:18:300:18:34

EXPLOSION

0:18:370:18:40

Where are they?

0:18:410:18:44

Right over our heads. If they get any nearer, you'd better lie on the floor. All of you.

EXPLOSION

0:19:080:19:11

-Lie on the floor!

-Will you let me go?

-They're aiming at this train.

0:19:110:19:16

-Just because you're scared.

-Don't be so brave!

-LOUD EXPLOSION

0:19:160:19:22

-May I help?

-There don't seem to be any stewards about. I've rather a heavy bag down there.

0:19:440:19:51

-May I?

-If you would.

-Thank you.

0:19:510:19:54

To think I used to dangle her over the rail when she was a baby! Pity you didn't let her drop.

0:20:040:20:10

Saved her father a few headaches. And her mother a few heartaches.

0:20:100:20:15

-Captain Foster. You don't remember me?

-Yes, you're Sally Maitland.

0:20:150:20:20

-I suppose I have changed a bit.

-Yes, you have. Excuse me.

0:20:200:20:24

I don't think you should be seen with me. I'm not very popular.

0:20:240:20:29

Most real men and women of the world were unpopular.

0:20:290:20:34

-Quite a philosopher! If you feel like that about it, perhaps you'll bring those bags along.

-A pleasure.

0:20:340:20:41

2472.

0:20:530:20:55

Yellow Canary.

0:20:550:20:58

SS Carina, Liverpool today.

0:20:590:21:02

She's on board.

0:21:020:21:04

They persuaded me to make the trip and now we're in the same cabin! Disgraceful!

0:21:050:21:13

I'll sleep on the floor and share a cabin with two women from Balham. Good Lord!

0:21:130:21:19

Peters, take these three to 17. Very good, sir.

0:21:190:21:23

If there's any trouble, could you see that I'm in number 3 lifeboat?

0:21:230:21:28

You're in 7 now. All right, Commander, I'll fix that.

0:21:280:21:32

-Mister, please.

-Aye-aye, sir. Not now, thanks.

0:21:320:21:36

-Your lifeboat station's number 3, Miss. Follow the arrows.

-Thank you.

0:21:410:21:46

-You're lucky. Miss Cholmondley, calls herself "Chumley", she's moved out.

-That's very lucky.

0:21:460:21:53

She's sharing a mattress on the floor with two others. No accounting for taste!

0:21:530:22:00

-Captain Orlock at your service.

-Thank you, Captain.

0:22:000:22:04

Are you saying goodbye to your country?

0:22:190:22:23

Not quite. My country is saying goodbye to me.

0:22:230:22:27

-I'm sorry.

-How do you know I mind?

-Goodbyes are always difficult.

0:22:270:22:32

-The rarest thing in the world is a happy ending.

-That's the second thing you've said I'll remember.

0:22:320:22:40

How nice of you to remember! There's our escort.

0:22:400:22:45

-Hello!

-I seem to have one of my own.

-Oh, we've met before.

0:22:480:22:53

-I don't think so.

-On the floor. Your head was on my shoulder. Hitler makes strange bedfellows.

0:22:530:23:00

-What are you talking about?

-Just talking to myself.

-I hope you find it interesting.

-I do. Very.

0:23:000:23:07

-What is your name?

-Never mind.

-I do mind. When I lie on the floor with someone, I like to know their name.

0:23:070:23:15

-It's not what I do with anyone, either!

-Mr Garrick, the Captain would like a word with you.

-Right.

0:23:150:23:22

-Probably wants to warn you about talking to strangers. Ask him my name.

-I will!

0:23:220:23:28

-I don't think he'll bother me again.

-I don't think he will. Shall we walk?

-Yes, all right.

0:23:280:23:35

-Morning, Captain.

-Morning, Commander. I understand you want to be called Mr Garrick.

-That's right.

0:23:350:23:43

-Any good reason?

-Very.

0:23:430:23:45

-Glass of sherry?

-Sherry? Thank you.

0:23:450:23:48

-What takes you over to the other side?

-Well...

-I shouldn't have asked.

0:23:480:23:53

I don't mind your knowing. It's hush-hush. It mustn't go further.

0:23:530:23:58

It's a supply job for the Canadian Navy. Everything from tin hats to toothpicks.

0:23:580:24:05

-Nothing hush-hush about that.

-That's not the exact truth, but that's the sort of thing it is.

-I see.

0:24:050:24:12

-Who is that girl?

-You don't know Sally Maitland?

0:24:120:24:16

-Sally Maitland? She's attractive, isn't she?

-You think so? You're welcome to her.

0:24:160:24:23

Thanks. I'll see what I can do about it. Cheers.

0:25:350:25:39

-Excuse me, Major. You've got yours on upside down.

-Have I? Doesn't make any difference.

0:25:390:25:46

You'll float upside down. It'll keep your feet dry.

0:25:460:25:50

-Are you pulling my leg?

-Me, sir?

-Yes, sir.

-No, sir.

-That's all right.

0:25:500:25:55

A lighted cigarette can be seen for 3/4 of a mile. An open porthole will endanger the safety of this ship.

0:25:550:26:03

Or any other ships in the vicinity.

0:26:040:26:07

All electric razors must be handed to the purser.

0:26:070:26:11

Why's that? They send out wavelengths. The U-Boats pick them up.

0:26:110:26:17

What did he say? The used blades float on the waves and the U-Boats pick them up.

0:26:170:26:23

Electric razors don't have blades. Who told you that?

0:26:230:26:27

I spoke to the Captain about you.

0:26:270:26:30

-What did he say?

-Not much. You have an exaggerated idea of yourself.

0:26:300:26:35

-You don't think much of the war.

-I don't.

-I agree. It's messed up a lot of things.

0:26:350:26:41

-If you don't mind, I'd rather not discuss the war.

-I agree. What shall we talk about?

0:26:410:26:48

-May I help you?

-No, thank you.

0:26:480:26:51

-Hello.

-Would you mind?

-Certainly.

0:26:520:26:55

Thank you.

0:26:560:26:59

Repeat. SS Carina reported.

0:27:100:27:14

Latitude...60...15...north,

0:27:140:27:18

longitude 20-15 west.

0:27:180:27:21

Lighted porthole observed by U-Boat 93.

0:27:210:27:25

We should sight her within 24 hours.

0:27:250:27:29

Is it necessary before blackout? It's stifling in here.

0:27:290:27:33

Sorry, Miss. Captain's orders. Somebody left a porthole open last night. On this side!

0:27:330:27:40

They are so refreshing. Especially Mrs Burton. Delicious caustic wit. Thank God I have a sense of humour!

0:27:400:27:48

And a proverbial heart of gold.

0:27:480:27:50

She asked if I'd sleep in her bed and she'd sleep on the floor.

0:27:500:27:55

Jolly good. Did you accept? Have you ever slept on the floor? Quite.

0:27:550:28:02

Ah, Mr Garrick! Oh, please don't get up!

0:28:020:28:06

CHILDREN LAUGHING

0:28:080:28:10

Watch this. >

0:28:100:28:13

One...two...three.

0:28:130:28:17

Where is it?

0:28:170:28:20

See? Did you see that?

0:28:200:28:22

Children, that's the end of children's hour for today. See you tomorrow at 11 o'clock.

0:28:220:28:29

Goodbye.

0:28:290:28:32

It was the worst blitz in Balham. After the bomb had burst, she was in her bed.

0:28:320:28:38

There was no bedroom. There wasn't even a house, but she was quite calm.

0:28:380:28:43

Here comes that woman.

0:28:430:28:46

As Mrs Burton would say, "dolled up like a tart".

0:28:460:28:50

-I hope she's not your friend.

-Never set eyes on her before this trip.

0:28:500:28:55

But you know all about her? Pro-Nazi? Fifth Columnist? Not so loud, but don't stop.

0:28:550:29:02

-Why are you making this dangerous journey to Canada?

-Don't you know?

0:29:020:29:07

I hear rumours, but I don't trust them.

0:29:070:29:11

Someone should warn that nice Polish Captain about her.

0:29:110:29:15

-He certainly hangs around.

-Probably trying to reform her.

0:29:150:29:20

They're so sentimental, the Poles.

0:29:200:29:23

-Why are you going to Canada?

-To see my mother. She's an invalid.

0:29:230:29:28

-I'm sorry.

-Did you ever go to Warsaw?

0:29:280:29:32

Hear that, Major? He's inviting her to Warsaw!

0:29:320:29:36

I don't think she'll go because I hear, strictly between ourselves,

0:29:360:29:41

that the real trouble between Hitler and Hess was...

0:29:410:29:45

HORN BLOWS

0:29:450:29:48

Do you know the real trouble between Hitler and Hess was all because...?

0:29:500:29:55

HORN BLOWS AGAIN

0:29:550:29:58

Hear that? That isn't news, buddy. Everybody on this ship knows that.

0:29:580:30:05

Of course it's true. I ought to know. Haven't I been doing her for nearly a week?

0:30:070:30:14

Yes. That's why they nearly ducked her in the pond at Hyde Park.

0:30:140:30:19

Don't you resent all these vile things people say about you?

0:30:220:30:26

What's the use?

0:30:260:30:29

Do you think any cause is worth it?

0:30:290:30:32

Don't let's talk about that.

0:30:320:30:34

Tell me some more about Warsaw.

0:30:340:30:37

What more else is there to tell?

0:30:370:30:40

We lost it. Yes, we lost everything.

0:30:400:30:43

Our cities, people, country, our children.

0:30:430:30:48

Suddenly, literally, out of the clouds, death, destruction, blown to pieces.

0:30:490:30:56

Hello! Carry on, Captain. Everything's gonna be all right.

0:30:590:31:04

Quiet trip so far. Yes, they said it would be. The devil sure takes care of his own.

0:31:130:31:20

BELL RINGS Oh-oh! There she goes!

0:31:200:31:24

Mummy, if the war goes on for years, shall we be Canadians?

0:31:240:31:29

But the war can't go on for years, darling.

0:31:290:31:32

Mrs Burton told me that it sometimes takes three weeks to cross.

0:31:320:31:37

Good Lord! To think I was born on the Queen Mary when she won the blue riband!

0:31:370:31:43

SNORING

0:31:430:31:46

Yes, it all seems very far away now - those evenings on our lovely terrace overlooking Warsaw,

0:31:460:31:53

my mother playing the piano. Beautiful. Even Paderewski was one of her admirers.

0:31:530:31:59

Then friends joining in singing folk songs, smoking, sipping Wisniowka.

0:31:590:32:05

It must seem very far away.

0:32:050:32:08

Does your mother still play?

0:32:080:32:11

No, she will never play again.

0:32:110:32:13

How sad!

0:32:150:32:18

There's a ship to starboard, sir.

0:32:210:32:24

Strange-looking craft. Maybe a Norwegian, sir.

0:32:270:32:32

It's a raider. And a big one.

0:32:320:32:35

-SS Carina on port side.

-Fire a salvo across her bows. Signal the heave-to.

0:32:350:32:42

Schuss vor dem Bug. Signal - beidrehen.

0:32:420:32:46

Sally, it would be so easy to fall in love with you.

0:32:460:32:50

How do you know I'd mind?

0:32:500:32:53

SHELLFIRE

0:33:040:33:07

SHOUTING

0:33:110:33:14

She's signalling us to heave to. Come on!

0:33:140:33:18

Sound the alarm. Make a dash for it!

0:33:210:33:24

ALARM RINGS

0:33:240:33:27

Miss Cholmondley, here it is. Yes, Major, here it is. I wonder how I shall behave.

0:33:330:33:40

There's no time to wonder about that now. Get into your life belt!

0:33:400:33:45

-She's changed direction and speeded up.

-Give her one round.

0:33:480:33:53

Mit Granaten geladen. Ein Schuss. Feuer!

0:33:530:33:57

-Shall we give her another?

-No. Repeat signal - heave to.

-Signal - beidrehen!

0:34:060:34:12

From the Third Officer, hit the midships, number two hold flooding.

0:34:120:34:17

Another shot and we'll be at the bottom. Signal we're heaving to.

0:34:170:34:22

-She's heaving to.

-Signal we'll send a boarding party.

0:34:250:34:30

-Signal - Prisenmannschaft kommt an Bord.

-You'd better go yourself.

0:34:300:34:36

Last time this happened, they took out a couple of passengers.

0:34:370:34:42

Maybe they'll take one back to where she belongs. Better go and meet them.

0:34:420:34:48

It's funny a cruiser boarding a little tub like this. Could have sunk us in five minutes.

0:34:490:34:56

-It must mean something.

-I suppose it must.

0:34:560:35:00

-Swine! Murderers of women and children!

-Wollen Sie Ihren Mund halten?

0:35:130:35:19

Ihr Nazis habt nur Courage, wenn ihr unbewaffnete Leute vor euch habt.

0:35:190:35:24

-Shut up!

-I will not shut up! I want everyone to hear and understand!

0:35:240:35:30

You Nazis are only happy when you have unarmed people in your power. Without arms, you are nothing!

0:35:300:35:37

-Halt's Maul!

-Aber euer Stern geht unter!

-Wollen Sie Ihren Mund halten!

-Und wenn er wieder aufgeht...

0:35:370:35:45

Strutting peacocks! Your blood pressure, Major.

0:35:490:35:53

I must keep it off the boil before I do something violent!

0:35:530:35:57

-Heil Hitler.

-What do you want?

-I want to take off one of your passengers.

-I cannot stop you.

0:35:590:36:06

-Send for Lieutenant-Commander Garrick.

-We have a Mr Garrick...

-Lieutenant-Commander Garrick!

0:36:060:36:13

Ask Mr Garrick to come on the bridge.

0:36:130:36:17

What's happened?

0:36:180:36:20

The Captain would like to see you.

0:36:200:36:23

-What's it mean?

-I'm afraid they're going to take you off.

-Are they?

0:36:270:36:34

You are carrying metals for aircraft production, 72 passengers and a crew of 54?

0:36:340:36:41

-Are you asking me to confirm your information?

-It has been confirmed from a reliable source.

0:36:410:36:48

Reliable, yes. I have women and children aboard. I want time to take to the boats before you sink me.

0:36:480:36:55

That is a matter for our Captain.

0:36:550:36:58

-< Mr Garrick!

-Lieutenant-Commander Garrick!

0:36:580:37:02

You are my prisoner. Gefangenen abfuhren!

0:37:020:37:06

-Is that all you want?

-You will signal to our ship that we are returning and await further orders.

0:37:080:37:16

Heil Hitler!

0:37:160:37:18

Lower the boats. Prepare to abandon ship.

0:37:180:37:22

Wouldn't it be nice to do something violent?

0:37:520:37:56

Heil Hitler!

0:37:560:37:59

-Du alte Sau!

-Please don't apologise. The pleasure is entirely mine.

0:38:020:38:07

Jolly good show. What did he say?

0:38:100:38:13

He just called me an old sow.

0:38:130:38:17

-Fraulein Maitland has some important work ahead.

-So it seems.

0:38:320:38:37

-Natural mistake to make in the blackout. A pal of mine met a girl in Piccadilly...

-Very clever!

0:38:370:38:44

-I suppose you have something more important to do.

-I must borrow a hat and coat.

0:38:440:38:51

The Fuhrer does not approve of our friends being watched.

0:38:510:38:56

-Except by the Gestapo.

-They'll be surprised to see you.

-Yes, very.

0:38:560:39:01

What does this mean? I was placed under orders, sir.

0:39:010:39:05

Message received, sir. Proceed. Proceed? Thank God for that! Cancel that last order.

0:39:050:39:11

I'm going to my cabin. Tell Garrick I want to see him.

0:39:110:39:15

-Sorry, but the job I'm on requires my personal services.

-He was the finest Second I've ever had.

0:39:150:39:22

-He was the finest Second I'VE ever had.

-What?

-He was the finest Second I've ever had.

0:39:220:39:29

He's got the chance he's been waiting for since the war started.

0:39:290:39:34

-Get it?

-I get it. Elementary, my dear Watson.

0:39:340:39:38

Took most of the skin off my shin, but it was worth it.

0:39:380:39:42

Mrs Burton, how thoughtful! After the excitement of tonight, I really need a tot. Bottoms up!

0:39:420:39:49

Lucky escape! It's a bleeding miracle!

0:39:540:39:58

It's all over now bar the shouting.

0:39:580:40:01

Somebody left a porthole open after blackout. Second night!

0:40:010:40:06

Sorry. Very absent-minded...of them.

0:40:060:40:09

I'll say! I was torpedoed last April. Lost everything!

0:40:090:40:13

Jolly bad luck. I've been torpedoed five times.

0:40:130:40:17

Good Lord! I don't know what my pals would say if they could see me now.

0:40:170:40:23

Everything from a Father Confessor to washing nappies! Revolting!

0:40:230:40:28

I endangered the whole ship.

0:40:280:40:31

No, I was wrong.

0:40:310:40:34

But, Sally...

0:40:340:40:36

I want you to understand this.

0:40:360:40:39

When I saw those Nazis... I got crazy.

0:40:390:40:43

If I could kill only one, it might ease the hate in me, hate like a pain the whole time.

0:40:430:40:50

-Do you understand?

-I have my way of looking at the war. You have yours. Jan, please leave it at that.

-Sally!

0:40:500:40:58

-When that bomb hit our house, my mother was nearly blinded. She will never walk again.

-I'm very sorry,

0:40:580:41:05

but war has always meant suffering.

0:41:050:41:08

But this war is different. We're fighting Nazis. Nazis aren't human!

0:41:080:41:13

They are out to destroy everything. Everything that's good.

0:41:130:41:17

Sally, from the first moment I saw you, I wanted to persuade you to see that.

0:41:170:41:24

I've failed, but I know someone who would.

0:41:240:41:28

-Who's that?

-My mother.

0:41:280:41:30

If only you would meet her.

0:41:300:41:33

I would like to meet your mother.

0:41:340:41:36

What do you know about Orlock?

0:41:360:41:39

Polish refugee. Crossing to see his mother. She was hurt at Warsaw. You can't help sympathising.

0:41:390:41:46

-The Chief tells me he let the Boche have it!

-Certainly shot his head off.

0:41:460:41:51

-Why that raider didn't sink us is beyond me.

-I'd like to know that too.

0:41:510:41:57

Good night.

0:41:580:42:01

Good night, Jan.

0:42:010:42:04

KNOCK AT DOOR

0:42:240:42:26

Sally... I can't leave you tonight without telling you how I feel about you.

0:42:260:42:33

-Oh, Jan!

-I don't care about your views. All I know is I love you.

0:42:330:42:38

KNOCK AT DOOR

0:42:380:42:41

-Come in.

-I thought you might sleep more soundly if you knew the Captain...

-Jump in the ocean!

0:42:410:42:48

-At 20 below zero?

-You're annoying Miss Maitland!

0:42:480:42:52

I feel that my motive hasn't been entirely appreciated. Good night.

0:42:520:42:57

Shall I shut the door or leave it on the latch?

0:42:570:43:01

Jan, I think you'd better go.

0:43:010:43:04

-But, Sally...

-No, please.

0:43:040:43:06

-Sally...

-Please, you must go, Jan!

0:43:090:43:12

Good night.

0:43:120:43:14

I'm instructing Truscott to sell my London house. Berkeley Square?

0:43:380:43:44

From now on, I'm going to live. I'm moving to Balham.

0:43:440:43:48

Halifax.

0:43:480:43:50

Mighty important place, Halifax.

0:43:510:43:54

-Gateway to Europe.

-I imagine that comes under the category of "careless talk".

0:43:550:44:02

-I suppose it was rather stupid saying that.

-Particularly to me.

0:44:020:44:07

Somehow I never feel that way about you.

0:44:070:44:11

-You'd better.

-Does Poland feel that way about you?

0:44:110:44:15

Wouldn't you like to know, flatfoot Garrick!

0:44:150:44:20

Well, I would like to know what you find to talk about all the time.

0:44:200:44:25

I expect you would.

0:44:250:44:27

Does he manage to keep off the war?

0:44:270:44:30

-I don't propose discussing it with you.

-You certainly do make conversation rather difficult.

0:44:300:44:37

I don't seem to.

0:44:370:44:40

How long will you be staying in Canada? Two months.

0:44:520:44:57

How long will you be staying in Canada, Captain? Two weeks.

0:44:570:45:03

Have a pleasant stay. Thank you.

0:45:030:45:06

Au revoir, Captain! What a hero! Stout fellow!

0:45:060:45:10

How long will you be staying in Canada? Three months.

0:45:100:45:15

No more luxury liners! Only way to travel, this!

0:45:150:45:19

Even with the U-Boat scare.

0:45:190:45:22

If I can be of any service to you while you're in Halifax, don't hesitate to call on me.

0:45:220:45:28

Thank you. How very kind! Did you hear that, Major?

0:45:280:45:32

Charming. Canadian hospitality. Jolly good show. Who is he?

0:45:320:45:37

Just a haberdasher.

0:45:410:45:43

-Miss Sally Maitland.

-Yes.

-How long will you be staying in Canada?

0:45:470:45:52

-Indefinitely.

-Have you got a room reserved in Halifax?

0:45:520:45:57

The hotels are packed. I could fix it for you. I've got influence.

0:45:570:46:02

I can manage quite well by myself.

0:46:020:46:05

Queer cargo they're sending us these days!

0:46:050:46:09

-How long will you be staying in Canada?

-Indefinitely.

0:46:090:46:13

-Weren't you rude to Miss Maitland?

-This is a free country. We can say what we please.

-So I see.

0:46:130:46:20

You have a room for Miss Maitland?

0:46:290:46:32

No, I can see no reservation in the name of Maitland.

0:46:320:46:36

It was booked before I left England.

0:46:360:46:39

We have a long waiting list and the guests are sleeping in the corridors.

0:46:390:46:44

One moment, Miss. I think you'd better call Miss Stander.

0:46:440:46:49

Miss Stander, there's a Miss Maitland here. She said she made reservations.

0:46:500:46:55

-Miss Sally Maitland?

-Yes.

-Yes.

0:46:560:47:00

Her room is 73. I will take care of her myself.

0:47:000:47:04

Your reservation had been made. Miss Stander will show you to your room. Fill in this form, please.

0:47:040:47:12

Sally Maitland est arrivee.

0:47:140:47:16

Je vais m'en occuper personellement.

0:47:160:47:19

Bien. Bien sur.

0:47:190:47:22

I have a room reserved. Joan Ward. Oh, yes.

0:47:240:47:29

How long will you be staying? Just overnight.

0:47:290:47:33

-Miss Sally Maitland?

-Yes.

-I'm sorry there was a mistake about your reservation.

0:47:330:47:39

Number 73. Have Miss Maitland's luggage taken up to her room.

0:47:390:47:44

-I will take you.

-Thank you.

0:47:440:47:47

-You're very busy.

-Yes, we're very busy.

0:47:510:47:55

-Are these all occupied?

-Yes, they are all occupied.

0:47:550:48:00

Marie, is Number 73 ready for Miss Maitland? Quite ready, mademoiselle.

0:48:000:48:06

Your room faces the sea which makes a blackout necessary. You will be very careful about it.

0:48:110:48:18

-Of course.

-It is the responsibility of the guests. The penalties are very severe.

-I understand.

0:48:180:48:25

Would you like me to unpack your bags?

0:48:250:48:29

-Thank you, no. I'll do them myself.

-Very well, madam.

0:48:290:48:33

Miss Maitland, do not judge Canadian hospitality by Miss Stander.

0:48:330:48:39

Downstairs we call her Sourpuss.

0:48:390:48:41

I don't wonder!

0:48:410:48:44

The Barrington? Advise the RCMP that Sally Maitland is at the Barrington Hotel.

0:48:440:48:51

We'll do our best, but it won't be very good.

0:48:530:48:57

INAUDIBLE

0:48:570:49:00

Yes. Yes, all right. Goodbye.

0:49:030:49:06

Did you tell 'em? They already knew, sir. And the room number is 73.

0:49:060:49:13

You'd better ring them again and ask them to detail a couple of men to keep Miss Maitland under observation.

0:49:130:49:20

Yes, sir.

0:49:200:49:23

-Hello. Glad to see you again. How about a drink?

-No, thank you.

0:49:390:49:44

-I don't want to be a nuisance, but...

-You're very considerate.

0:49:440:49:49

-That's the first kind word you've said. Free for dinner?

-No.

0:49:490:49:54

-I'll have to spend the rest of the evening in the bar.

-Too bad. Hello!

0:49:540:49:59

-In case you don't know, there are no bars in Halifax.

-If you please...

0:49:590:50:04

Chateau Brochet.

0:50:130:50:16

Yeah, that's her.

0:50:400:50:42

What a reputation she's made for herself! Yeah.

0:50:420:50:47

-Sally, this is our good friend, Maria Balska.

-How do you do?

-You're very welcome.

0:50:490:50:55

Where's Mother? She's resting. The excitement of seeing you has exhausted her.

0:50:550:51:02

-Would you prefer that I...?

-No, Madame Orlock receives few visitors.

0:51:020:51:07

She's so looking forward to meeting you. May I take your hat and coat?

0:51:070:51:13

-Thank you, no. If Madame is tired, I won't stay long.

-Very thoughtful.

0:51:130:51:18

-What an unusual house.

-Yes, it has quite an atmosphere of Europe, of our own home.

0:51:180:51:24

-You must have a lovely view here.

-Oh, yeah.

0:51:240:51:28

There she goes.

0:51:310:51:33

-Blackout, Sally!

-I'm sorry. It isn't that I haven't been warned.

0:51:330:51:38

-How do they run things here?

-The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are responsible for security.

0:51:380:51:45

They contact us or the military or the air force in any matters that concern our services.

0:51:450:51:52

-They know everything and everybody. PHONE RINGS

-So I understand.

0:51:520:51:59

Right. She's at the Chateau Brochet. That's the Polish woman.

0:51:590:52:03

-What do you know about Madame Orlock?

-Apportez-moi le dossier d'Orlock.

0:52:030:52:10

She's quite a remarkable old lady. Why are you so interested in her?

0:52:100:52:15

-I don't want her to get into bad company.

-Her son came over with you.

0:52:150:52:20

-Yes, I know. I couldn't get him out of my hair.

-Bien.

0:52:200:52:24

She's rented the chateau for the duration. Polish refugee, very well to do, good family.

0:52:240:52:31

Aristocratic. Papers are in order.

0:52:310:52:34

Ah, there you are!

0:52:410:52:43

-Mother, this is...

-Sally Maitland.

0:52:430:52:47

Well, well, well!

0:52:470:52:49

Come a bit closer, my dear.

0:52:510:52:54

-My eyes...

-Yes, Mother, I told her.

0:52:540:52:57

Sit down, dear. Here, near me, will you?

0:52:570:53:01

Jan, this is an occasion. We have very few visitors nowadays.

0:53:020:53:07

Bring some wine, Jan.

0:53:070:53:10

Yes...

0:53:100:53:13

A strong face and a fine couch - one who is not afraid to be alone

0:53:140:53:21

against a crowd, to swim against the stream.

0:53:210:53:25

You're very understanding, madam.

0:53:260:53:29

Now that you are with us in Halifax, are you going to stay here?

0:53:290:53:34

I expect so. I have no plans.

0:53:340:53:37

Have you any friends here?

0:53:370:53:40

I left my friend... That is, I haven't any.

0:53:400:53:44

-I hope to make new friends.

-You must come here whenever you care to.

0:53:450:53:51

And now that we have met, you must not wait for Jan to bring you.

0:53:510:53:57

That's very kind of you.

0:53:570:53:59

-Sally...

-Thank you.

0:53:590:54:02

Mother?

0:54:020:54:04

You know, Jan has set me a task.

0:54:040:54:07

Or should I rather say, a labour of love.

0:54:070:54:11

So I believe.

0:54:110:54:14

Here's to a happier future for the world!

0:54:140:54:18

To the new order!

0:54:180:54:21

-Sally, how could you...?

-I'm sorry, Jan.

-That's all right.

0:54:220:54:27

I shall drink to the new freedom.

0:54:270:54:30

Or as I don't care much for new things, I'll drink to the old freedom restored

0:54:300:54:36

and leave it to Jan and his friends to fight for theirs. Freedom is never a thing to take for granted.

0:54:360:54:44

-So, to the past!

-To the future!

0:54:440:54:47

That leaves me with the present.

0:54:470:54:50

After all, it's usually the most important.

0:54:500:54:54

-She thinks I'm a halfwit. The last place she'd expect to find me is in an intelligence department.

-Good.

0:54:540:55:01

-Miss Maitland just left the chateau.

-Can I get a lift to the hotel?

0:55:010:55:06

-Take my car. It's at the side entrance.

-Thank you, sir. Good night.

-Good night. Let's have coffee, Paul!

0:55:060:55:14

Had the fog cleared at the chateau, Captain?

0:55:150:55:19

Yes. Not nearly so thick. Thank you, Captain.

0:55:190:55:23

Good night.

0:55:320:55:34

-Goodbye, Jan.

-Goodbye?

-It's better if we don't see each other again.

0:55:340:55:39

-Why?

-I wrecked a pleasant evening, I distressed your mother.

-My mother understands as I do.

0:55:390:55:46

-I don't think you do.

-Sally, we must meet again and talk everything over.

0:55:460:55:51

-It will lead to the same...

-I will take no refusal. I will call for you at three. Good night.

-Good night.

0:55:510:55:59

Good night!

0:56:090:56:12

-What are you doing there?

-Getting a night's rest.

-Why outside my door?

0:56:120:56:18

-Last bed in the hotel. Last in Halifax.

-I thought you had influence.

-That's how I got this.

0:56:180:56:25

Good night! Happy dreams!

0:56:250:56:28

A policeman's first duty is to his feet. Yours would get a better rest if you took your boots off.

0:56:300:56:38

Heck, blue booties!

0:56:390:56:42

Citadel Hill is my favourite spot. I get such a feeling of spaciousness here.

0:56:430:56:49

-I can see it all so clearly in my imagination.

-Halifax has a wonderful history.

0:56:490:56:55

Yes, Jan told me all about it. He is a great reader. You know, Sally,

0:56:550:57:02

your great Nelson used Halifax for refitting his fleet.

0:57:020:57:06

And in the American Civil War, it was a home port for the blockade runners.

0:57:060:57:13

And in the last war it was as it is now - a gateway to the Battle of the Atlantic.

0:57:130:57:20

Don't distress yourself by too much talking.

0:57:200:57:24

The real miracle of Halifax is its resurrection after destruction.

0:57:240:57:29

In 1917 a great ship loaded with TNT collided with another in the harbour.

0:57:290:57:34

-A drum of petrol overturned on deck and caught fire. A British cruiser was nearby.

-The Highflyer.

0:57:340:57:41

You know the story?

0:57:410:57:44

I must have read it somewhere, possibly in the Reader's Digest.

0:57:440:57:49

-Didn't a group of sailors try to put the fire out?

-Yes. It was one of the greatest explosions ever heard!

0:57:490:57:57

Every ship in the harbour was wrecked, a huge tidal wave. Thousands of people were killed and injured.

0:57:570:58:05

A devastating blow to the Allies!

0:58:050:58:07

-It was.

-Children, as if there weren't enough horrors today without recalling the past ones!

0:58:070:58:14

-I think it must be getting on for teatime.

-You will be coming with us, Sally?

0:58:140:58:20

-If I may.

-Of course. Come along, Jan - tea!

0:58:200:58:25

It'll be better to do it while she's with them. They'll go back to the chateau?

0:58:250:58:31

It's practically certain. Do we pull any punches, sir? No, make it a frontal attack.

0:58:310:58:38

Although make it clear we're acting in a friendly spirit. That's all.

0:58:380:58:43

GENTLE PIANO MUSIC

0:58:440:58:47

More tea, Sally?

0:58:470:58:50

Listening to music is one of my greatest delights.

0:58:520:58:56

It even means more now than it did, now that I cannot play myself any more.

0:58:560:59:03

-Two men have called, Madame.

-Two men?

-Who? I've never seen them before.

0:59:030:59:10

-British? Yes. They wish to know if you are at home.

-Of course. Show them in.

0:59:100:59:17

Give me another cup, Jan.

0:59:170:59:19

Madame, we're from Headquarters, Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

0:59:280:59:34

-How can I help you? This is my son Jan.

-How do you do?

0:59:340:59:38

-And...

-Miss Maitland, we know.

0:59:380:59:41

The point is this. It's confirmed by Miss Maitland being here.

0:59:410:59:46

And being at Citadel Hill with you.

0:59:460:59:49

Miss Maitland is pro-Nazi and makes no attempt to hide it.

0:59:490:59:54

In England she was conspicuous by her anti-British feeling. And was thrown out.

0:59:541:00:01

But this is purely an unofficial visit, a friendly one to warn you.

1:00:011:00:06

You are guests in Canada and we don't want you to put yourselves in an embarrassing position.

1:00:061:00:13

It would be unwise of you to continue to entertain Miss Maitland during her stay in Halifax.

1:00:131:00:20

-- Good afternoon. - Good afternoon.

-Good afternoon.

1:00:201:00:25

I'm sorry. I'll go at once.

1:00:301:00:32

-I will not have you driven from my home.

-Thank you for your kindness. I'm sorry for this unpleasantness.

1:00:321:00:40

-I'd rather go.

-Jan, go with her.

1:00:401:00:42

-Yes.

-Goodbye.

1:00:421:00:45

They talk about the Gestapo! Those men bursting into your house like that - it's outrageous!

1:00:461:00:53

-I shall leave Halifax tomorrow.

-But, Sally...

-No, Jan, I've made up my mind.

1:00:531:00:59

Sally, I want you to stay here and we will repay them with interest.

1:00:591:01:04

-What do you mean?

-I have many friends in Halifax.

1:01:041:01:08

-Stop talking in riddles.

-Sally, let's sit down.

1:01:081:01:12

I'm in your hands, Sally.

1:01:331:01:36

Rather the other way round, isn't it? I'm in yours.

1:01:361:01:40

-Does your mother know?

-Never say a word to her about this. She couldn't bear the shock. You swear?

1:01:401:01:48

-Yes, of course.

-I knew I could trust you.

1:01:481:01:52

It was my mission to follow you from England and keep watch over you.

1:01:521:01:57

You won the Fuhrer's admiration. I myself heard him speak highly of you.

1:01:571:02:02

Now you have the honour to serve him.

1:02:021:02:04

-What do you want me to do?

-Important work. We have a great organisation.

-You are the leader?

-No.

1:02:041:02:11

-Only a very few know who the leader is.

-Are there many of you?

1:02:111:02:17

Enough. And none of us a suspect.

1:02:171:02:19

Well?

1:02:231:02:25

-When do I start?

-Aber euer Stern geht unter. Wenn er wieder aufgeht...

1:02:251:02:31

I've heard that somewhere before.

1:02:311:02:34

On the ship. I gave that message to our commander. It was too important to trust our infallible channels.

1:02:341:02:41

This star is waning. When it rises again...

1:02:421:02:47

-That's very soon.

-Almost immediately.

1:02:471:02:51

Jan, you've given me the opportunity I've been waiting for - to serve the cause I believe in.

1:02:511:02:58

The cause for which I would die.

1:02:581:03:00

A true Nazi.

1:03:011:03:04

This was given to me by the Fuhrer himself. Take it.

1:03:041:03:09

To draw from it the courage to carry out his great work.

1:03:101:03:14

I simply couldn't resist calling and meeting his mother.

1:03:151:03:20

You would have been very proud of how he went for that Boche. He called me an old sow, the swine!

1:03:201:03:27

Captain, you must be surprised to see me here. I am delighted.

1:03:271:03:33

I've been hearing of your terrifying experience. Why didn't you tell me?

1:03:331:03:38

It was nothing to worry you with. How modest!

1:03:381:03:42

Talking of modesty, the modesty of Mr Garrick. What do you think? I haven't the faintest idea.

1:03:421:03:49

Neither had I. Lieutenant-Commander in the British Naval Intelligence.

1:03:491:03:55

DSO for something very hush-hush. >

1:03:551:03:58

It just shows you how careful you must be.

1:03:581:04:02

LOUD THUMP

1:05:101:05:12

Put your hands up.

1:05:211:05:24

Turn round.

1:05:241:05:26

I thought so.

1:05:261:05:29

-Here we are. I suppose you know who I am.

-British Intelligence following me around.

1:05:291:05:35

-Correct.

-Now that you are here, watch that door for me. This is my pigeon, not yours.

-OK, Chief.

1:05:351:05:43

-After all the preparation this took, can't they trust me?

-This is a pretty risky job.

1:05:431:05:50

-I was told to stand by in case I'm needed.

-All this stuff has been planted for our benefit.

1:05:501:05:57

Not up to their usual standard.

1:05:571:06:00

-PIANO MUSIC

-Somebody playing to the old lady.

-Can't be Jan. He's gone out.

1:06:001:06:07

If you hear anyone coming, switch the light off. Get behind these curtains.

1:06:071:06:13

Hello!

1:06:131:06:16

We were expected. Quite a bonfire! There's no point wasting time here, but I must have a talk with you.

1:06:161:06:24

-We might even have a drink.

-We'd better not leave together.

1:06:241:06:28

-You first.

-If they catch you, you've no excuse. I'm one of them now. Off you go.

1:06:281:06:35

-This may be your pigeon, but you're my pigeon. Off YOU go!

-Have it your way.

-Wait for me at the Barrington.

1:06:351:06:42

I'll pick you up.

1:06:421:06:45

I was beginning to think he never would give himself away,

1:06:461:06:51

but having myself denounced at the Orlock home did the trick. He spilt the beans within an hour!

1:06:511:06:58

-Pretty smart work.

-Now I'm in it with them up to my neck. They've got something very big and very soon.

1:06:581:07:06

-What makes you think that?

-Aber euer Stern geht unter. Wenn er wieder aufgeht...

1:07:061:07:12

-I'm not too good at conundrums.

-When did you first get on to Jan?

1:07:121:07:17

-When he shouted back in perfect German.

-Pretty smart work.

1:07:171:07:22

Aber euer Stern geht unter und wenn er wieder aufgeht...

1:07:381:07:42

Versteh' ich nicht.

1:07:421:07:45

May I see your identification card and passport, please?

1:07:451:07:50

Ihre Reisenpass und Ausweiskarte.

1:07:511:07:54

-What is your authority?

-RCMP and Naval Intelligence.

-Good enough.

1:07:541:07:59

OK. But you might remember. German is not a very popular language round here.

1:08:051:08:11

-So I see.

-Pretty smart work! I think we'd better beat it.

1:08:111:08:16

-Taking time by the Orlock, as you might say.

-That takes me straight to bed.

-I'll come with you.

-Pardon?

1:08:161:08:23

Well, good night.

1:08:261:08:28

-You should ask them for a room. Get a decent night's rest.

-I'm getting attached to that.

1:08:281:08:35

-I'm afraid I've been rude to you.

-Yes, I've taken plenty of brushing off.

1:08:351:08:41

Do you think I enjoy doing it?

1:08:411:08:44

-You seemed to be having a heck of a good time.

-Did I?

-Yes, you did.

1:08:441:08:49

I'm sorry. After all, we weren't exactly being ourselves, were we?

1:08:491:08:54

It might be fun being ourselves.

1:08:541:08:58

Yes, I... I think it might.

1:08:591:09:02

Here goes. Hold on to your hat!

1:09:021:09:05

-Now who's taking time by the Orlock?

-Does that guy always have to butt in?

-Good night.

1:09:071:09:14

Good night.

1:09:141:09:16

-Would you mind telling me what you mean by that joke?

-What joke?

1:09:221:09:27

-The joke on my name.

-Oh, that! Shocking bad joke, wasn't it? Typically British.

1:09:271:09:34

-I was throwing it back where it came from.

-Mr Garrick?

-Yes, it fits him.

1:09:341:09:39

-You're friendly with him.

-Yes.

-He's in British Intelligence.

-Yes, I know.

1:09:391:09:44

-Yet you exchange bad jokes with him and confidences.

-Jan, aren't you being a little difficult?

1:09:441:09:52

I've started my new job. Being offhand with him was a mistake.

1:09:521:09:57

Tonight we've made friends, we've exchanged all sorts of confidences.

1:09:571:10:02

-Mr Garrick will be useful.

-You expect me to believe that?

1:10:021:10:06

-Yes. We have to trust each other.

-GUN CLICKS

-What's all this?

1:10:061:10:13

Put on your hat and coat. Walk out of this hotel. Ask the commissionaire to call a taxi. I'll follow you.

1:10:131:10:21

Any trick and it will be too bad.

1:10:211:10:24

I see. You've caught me.

1:10:241:10:27

-It's my own fault. I should have checked up on you.

-Go on.

1:10:271:10:32

What else is there to say? You're in the British Secret Service and you've got me.

1:10:321:10:38

-Anything else?

-Yes. Yes, there is one thing.

1:10:381:10:43

Don't let them take me back to England. Let them deal with it here.

1:10:431:10:49

You rat!

1:10:521:10:54

I really believed you when you said you loved me.

1:10:541:10:59

Forgive me, darling.

1:11:011:11:04

I do love you. But you see, I had to make sure.

1:11:041:11:08

Tonight we strike and you are to play a vital part. I'm taking you to meet the council and the leader.

1:11:081:11:15

-They're accepting you on my responsibility.

-I see.

1:11:151:11:20

Don't ever do that again.

1:11:201:11:22

You scared me.

1:11:221:11:25

No need. If everything goes well tonight, I have decided we shall be married immediately.

1:11:251:11:32

-How nice.

-Yes.

1:11:321:11:34

-And now we must hurry. We're late already. We're due now.

-Now?

1:11:351:11:40

Yes, now.

1:11:401:11:43

Sally...

1:11:461:11:48

What a mess I've made of your face!

1:11:481:11:51

Wait a minute.

1:11:511:11:53

-There. Get my coat out of that cupboard over there.

-Right.

-I'll fix my lips.

1:11:531:12:00

There are several coats here. Which one, darling?

1:12:011:12:05

-The fur one.

-Fur one.

1:12:051:12:07

You know, Sally, I really ought to object to that. The Fuhrer frowns upon such vanities.

1:12:161:12:23

When I first met him in 1937, I had on this identical shade. He rather liked it.

1:12:231:12:29

That, of course, is different.

1:12:291:12:32

-Oh.

-Yes, that English fool outside.

-Wait.

1:12:321:12:36

He's asleep.

1:12:421:12:44

We'd better not be seen going out of my room together.

1:12:501:12:55

That would never do. I'll go first, meet you at the top of the staircase.

1:12:551:13:00

-Make it the back staircase, right opposite.

-Right.

1:13:001:13:04

Tonight we make amends for our one great failure.

1:13:541:13:58

-Your efficient organisation?

-On this occasion, even we failed.

1:13:581:14:03

-When was that?

-The night before we left England we missed dealing a blow the English couldn't have taken.

1:14:031:14:11

-How?

-The King and Queen and the Princesses were either at Buckingham Palace or in the country.

1:14:111:14:18

The Luftwaffe was approaching. Our member was to signal at which place the Royal Family were.

1:14:181:14:25

We knew the precise spot in the country where they were,

1:14:251:14:30

but he sent up the wrong signal, Buckingham Place was bombed and the Royal Family escaped.

1:14:301:14:36

-What happened to your member?

-Oscar Burrell? He was found dead.

-Suicide?

-What else could he have done?

1:14:361:14:44

Of course. What else?

1:14:441:14:47

She threw that at me. He must have been in her room the whole time.

1:14:471:14:52

-How he got in there...

-"Go HQ. Wait." She's got her wits about her.

-She's terrific.

1:14:521:14:58

Sir, I must see you alone. Speak in front of Cdr Garrick. Jack Cardwell, a promising youngster.

1:14:581:15:05

Thank you, sir. Go ahead. I'm on to something important.

1:15:051:15:10

Sally Maitland is up to her tricks.

1:15:101:15:13

We've been discussing her. I think you can safely leave that young woman to us.

1:15:131:15:19

It's the Queen Mary. Sabotage. We'll get on to that. In the meanwhile, you lay off, Cardwell.

1:15:191:15:26

Aye-aye, sir. Very good work.

1:15:261:15:29

-Don't any of your boys know about Sally?

-No.

1:15:291:15:33

Only myself and the head of the Mounties. That's how they wanted it.

1:15:331:15:38

They've built her up, so we agreed.

1:15:381:15:41

-Fancy being accused of sabotaging the Queen Mary!

-We can forget that!

1:15:411:15:46

-You looked surprised to find me in your room.

-I was. How did you get in?

-Our organisation is very efficient.

1:15:461:15:54

-So it seems.

-And the Fuhrer always watches over good friends of the Third Reich.

1:15:541:16:00

-The canary?

-Mm-hm.

-You put it in my cabin?

-And sent you one in London.

1:16:001:16:05

-Just in case I should change my opinion of the British?

-Precisely.

1:16:051:16:10

-Well, well! Today has been full of surprises.

-And you will have a few more before the day is over.

1:16:101:16:18

Ihr habt alle grossartige Arbeit geleistet.

1:16:281:16:32

Der Fuhrer ist zufrieden.

1:16:321:16:35

Der Fuhrer erwartet heute abend von euch allen aussersten Einsatz!

1:16:351:16:41

Ihr konnt stolz darauf sein,

1:16:411:16:43

die Befehle des Fuhrers ausfuhren zu durfen.

1:16:431:16:47

DOORBELL Das ist Kurt. Und Fraulein Maitland.

1:16:471:16:52

Heil Hitler.

1:17:051:17:08

ALL: Heil Hitler!

1:17:081:17:11

Heil Hitler.

1:17:111:17:13

Meine Damen und Herren, ich freue mich am heutigen Abend, eine neue Mitarbeiterin vorstellen zu durfen.

1:17:131:17:21

Fraulein Sally Maitland!

1:17:211:17:24

I will now introduce. Karl-Heinz Stetto.

1:17:241:17:29

-Freut mich sehr, mein Fraulein.

-Surely...

-It's queer cargo they're sending us these days.

1:17:291:17:35

< Fraulein Gretl Kuhne. Unsere Organisation ist unseres Fuhrers wurdig.

1:17:351:17:41

-I thought you were too good to be true.

-And the means of my getting into your room. Frau Brehme!

1:17:411:17:48

-I am glad to see you complied with the blackout regulations.

-The penalties were severe.

1:17:481:17:55

< Herr von Kamnitz. Sehr geehrt, gnadiges Fraulein. I hope you found Room 73 comfortable.

1:17:551:18:03

-I must say you've been looking after me.

-Our organisation...

-Very efficient.

-Thank you.

1:18:031:18:10

-Orlock and Sally have just gone into the chateau.

-I'll get going, sir.

-Where?

-To the chateau.

1:18:131:18:20

-I think you'd better wait here. She asked you to.

-I suppose I better.

1:18:201:18:25

Achtung! The leader!

1:18:261:18:28

Heil Hitler!

1:18:431:18:45

ALL: Heil Hitler!

1:18:451:18:48

Heil Hitler.

1:18:481:18:50

So we are gathered in this room for the last time.

1:18:571:19:02

After months of preparation, the hour has come. Tonight we strike.

1:19:021:19:07

Herr Stetto, Frau Kuhne and Brehme, Herr von Kamnitz, return to work.

1:19:071:19:12

Within a few hours, you may have to lay down your lives for the Fuhrer. You will do so readily.

1:19:121:19:19

-If you escape this calamity, you will get further instructions. Heil Hitler.

-Heil Hitler!

1:19:191:19:25

So, Fraulein Maitland,

1:19:281:19:31

-your attention.

-Madame Orlock, I'm all attention.

-Before I tell you your part in this undertaking,

1:19:311:19:38

I must tell you that Jan - Kurt - is not my son and we are not Poles.

1:19:381:19:43

-Madame Orlock...

-To make such a pretence even for the cause is most distasteful!

1:19:431:19:50

-Six people have entered the house now. No-one's left it yet.

-A thick fog is coming up from the harbour.

1:19:501:19:58

-If it gets worse, it'll be hard to keep the house under observation.

-I hope she's all right, sir.

1:19:581:20:05

She will be. There's obviously a council meeting and she's in on it. It's just what we all hoped for.

1:20:051:20:12

-She'll get a message through.

-She'll have a mouthful to tell us tomorrow.

1:20:121:20:18

Long before morning everything will be over. "It must have been a devastating blow to the Allies."

1:20:181:20:25

Remember saying that when Kurt told you about the Halifax explosion in the last war?

1:20:251:20:32

-Yes, I remember.

-You never spoke a truer word.

1:20:321:20:36

Even as I am speaking, a great convoy is nearing its destination.

1:20:361:20:41

Last night, under the cover of fog, number four of the convoy, manned by Fifth Columnists,

1:20:411:20:47

was substituted for a ship manned by a German crew.

1:20:471:20:51

Das bevorstehende Unternehmen ist von allergrosster Bedeutung fur das dritte Reich.

1:20:511:20:58

Im Namen des Fuhrers verleihe ich ihnen fur die ganze Besatzung das Eiserne Kreuz erste Klasse im voraus.

1:20:581:21:06

Sieg Heil! Heil Hitler!

1:21:061:21:08

On board are tons of TNT. The crew will abandon ship and a time fuse will do its work.

1:21:081:21:15

The explosion of 1917 will be repeated. The gateway to the Battle of the Atlantic will be shattered.

1:21:151:21:22

-How ingenious! How clever!

-Neither ingenious nor clever. Anyone could have thought of it.

1:21:221:21:29

Most people would have thought it could not be done. It took years of preparing for it.

1:21:291:21:36

-That's all.

-What is my part to be?

1:21:361:21:38

You are a suspect with the British Intelligence. We must have attention diverted.

1:21:381:21:45

At the far end of the basin is the Queen Mary. She is due to sail tomorrow and full of troops.

1:21:451:21:53

Tell your friend Garrick of the sabotage plot.

1:21:531:21:57

We made sure this rumour has reached Naval Intelligence.

1:21:571:22:01

Tell him every available man is needed to prevent the catastrophe.

1:22:011:22:06

-He's at the Barrington. I'll...

-No, he left there and is now at British Naval Intelligence.

1:22:061:22:13

-Then I can go...

-No, my dear. You will not leave here. You will never leave us again.

1:22:131:22:20

At the far end of the narrows is a launch. At Sable Island is a U-Boat.

1:22:201:22:25

It will take us to Germany, the country to which we belong.

1:22:251:22:30

-Our organisation is very efficient.

-Yes, very. Well...

-You will telephone him. Kurt!

1:22:301:22:37

FOGHORN BLASTS

1:22:381:22:41

Good. Even the elements are with us.

1:22:431:22:46

Sally...

1:22:461:22:48

Thick like a blanket.

1:22:511:22:53

The number is Halifax 2421.

1:22:551:22:58

Tell the monitor you are on British Intelligence staff and not to disconnect your call

1:22:581:23:04

-although she can listen in.

-You think of everything.

-Of course.

1:23:041:23:09

-Now, there is a plot to blow up the Queen Mary.

-Within the next hour.

-Within the next hour.

1:23:091:23:16

-Send every available man.

-Good. You were born for the Secret Service.

1:23:161:23:22

I hope so.

1:23:221:23:24

-Halifax...?

-2421.

1:23:241:23:27

2421? You must not discuss shipping, troop movements or any information of use to the enemy.

1:23:271:23:34

I have something urgent for Naval Intelligence. Listen, but don't cut me off.

1:23:341:23:40

PHONE RINGS

1:23:401:23:43

No, not that one.

1:23:431:23:45

Hello, hello? Yes...? Sally!

1:23:451:23:49

Listen, I'm at a Bund meeting. The council.

1:23:491:23:53

But, darling, you must believe me. It's desperately urgent.

1:23:541:23:59

The Queen Mary is sailing tomorrow.

1:23:591:24:03

-The Queen Mary? It is the Queen Mary.

-RCMP!

1:24:031:24:07

Yes, I know, but I can't go through with it. I'm terrified.

1:24:071:24:12

You've got to act quickly. Tonight. Within an hour!

1:24:121:24:17

-SHOUTING

-Forget about the Queen Mary!

1:24:171:24:21

A ship is approaching Halifax loaded with TNT.

1:24:211:24:25

-A convoy due in Halifax tonight, a ship full of TNT to be exploded in the narrows.

-Admiral Dixon!

1:24:251:24:33

Sally! I'm off to the chateau, sir.

1:24:331:24:35

-Das Licht, Maria! GUNSHOT

-Maria, Licht!

1:24:351:24:40

Maria, das Auto! Nach vorne! Schnell!

1:24:401:24:44

-I told you I never trusted that girl! Du dummer Junge!

-BOTH SHOUT AT ONCE

1:24:441:24:51

-Get rid of her!

-I'll get rid of her.

1:24:511:24:54

Drop that phone.

1:24:541:24:57

Drop it!

1:24:571:24:59

Hands up!

1:24:591:25:02

You rotten cheat! You make me look a stupid fool.

1:25:021:25:06

You've done more harm to our cause...

1:25:061:25:09

-You're wasting valuable time.

-Anything else you would like to say?

1:25:091:25:14

-Yes.

-You'd better be quick.

1:25:141:25:17

GUNSHOT

1:25:171:25:20

Gosh, there's one humdinger of a row going on here. Hello!

1:25:201:25:25

-Is she dead?

-I made no mistake about that.

-Kurt!

1:25:251:25:29

Get over there! Put your hands up! Put 'em up!

1:25:291:25:33

-Hello!

-Hello, monitor! Monitor, flash this line!

1:25:331:25:38

Right. Urgent. This is Lieutenant-Commander Garrick, Naval Intelligence.

1:25:381:25:45

Verify Headquarters.

1:25:451:25:48

-Message. Call RCMP...

-GUNSHOT

1:25:481:25:52

Not you, Mama! Sit down!

1:25:521:25:54

Tell RCMP, full steam ahead, Chateau Brochet. Brochet!

1:25:541:26:00

I've got it. You're holding Madame Orlock and the phoney Captain. I've got it.

1:26:001:26:07

Send doctor, ambulance. If this message is understood, flash again.

1:26:071:26:12

-TWO BLIPS

-Right, you sons of Fritzes...

1:26:121:26:17

Call all patrol cars and have them converge on the Chateau Brochet. Report to that point!

1:26:171:26:23

Make a signal, urgent. Number Four in S Convoy loaded TNT, due for destruction on arrival.

1:26:231:26:30

Number Four in convoy, loaded TNT. German crew, out to destroy Halifax?

1:26:301:26:35

How thick is the fog? Visibility zero. Fog thickening.

1:26:351:26:40

Number Four's in the centre of the convoy. I'll head her off.

1:26:401:26:45

Signal every ship that passes and identify code numbers. Aye-aye, sir.

1:26:451:26:51

That's her.

1:26:531:26:56

Ahoy there! What's your number?

1:26:561:26:59

Ahoy there! What's your number? >

1:27:021:27:04

Number four!

1:27:051:27:08

Heave to!

1:27:081:27:10

Stimmt etwas nicht. Sind wir entdeckt? Dann geht's aber los!

1:27:101:27:15

Volle Kraft voraus!

1:27:151:27:18

Number Four, heave to or I'll sink you!

1:27:201:27:25

Then you'll sink the whole convoy!

1:27:251:27:28

Make a signal for every ship to disperse and meet at the final rendezvous.

1:27:281:27:35

Sagen Sie dem ersten Offizier, volle Kraft voraus!

1:27:351:27:39

Make a signal. RCAF. Ask for a bomber flight to head for this position. Aye-aye, sir.

1:27:391:27:46

Make a signal. RCAF operations.

1:27:461:27:49

Yes, I've got it.

1:27:491:27:52

Ops Room, urgent message, sir, from Naval HQ.

1:27:521:27:56

Send bomber flight, latitude...

1:27:561:27:59

- Lookout, visibility? - Visibility ten yards, sir. No sign of Number Four.

1:28:111:28:18

Any sign of her? No. What do the instruments say?

1:28:241:28:28

500 yards to starboard on a course west by nor'west.

1:28:281:28:32

As a last resort, we'll ram her. The convoy's well out of close range.

1:28:321:28:37

AIRCRAFT ENGINES ROAR

1:29:021:29:05

Flugzeuge. Ja.

1:29:081:29:12

Squadron Leader reports Number Four visible above low fog, sir, about 600 yards to our starboard.

1:29:141:29:21

Make a signal. Squadron Leader...

1:29:221:29:25

What does he say? Finish her off.

1:29:271:29:31

Full speed ahead, sou' by sou'west.

1:29:321:29:35

All hands stand by in life belts. All rafts at the ready.

1:29:351:29:39

Schnell ansteuern!

1:29:571:29:59

Any chance, Doctor?

1:30:161:30:18

Sit down, my dear. No need to fuss round like that. Much better to get on with breakfast.

1:30:311:30:38

Breakfast isn't in yet. There's the coffee.

1:30:381:30:42

Oh, dear, oh, dear! Coffee, my dear?

1:30:421:30:45

-Yes, please.

-Is it one saccharin or two?

-One, please.

1:30:451:30:50

When I think of that last day she was here, that yellow canary, the things you said to her.

1:30:501:30:57

-You were just as bad.

-Was I? I suppose I was. Oh, dear, oh, dear!

1:30:571:31:03

Why was I such a blind fool? You couldn't help it. If she'd only given us a hint...

1:31:031:31:09

-She was in the SECRET Service.

-Why didn't she wear a uniform?

1:31:091:31:14

DOORBELL Front door! Don't get excited!

1:31:141:31:19

Hello, Hargreaves. What are you doing here? Sorry to sound inhospitable, but...

1:31:191:31:26

- We were expecting... - She's done her last job for us. Be prepared for a shock.

1:31:261:31:33

She's a very different Sally from the girl who left a few months ago.

1:31:331:31:38

-Sally! Darling!

-Mother!

1:31:381:31:42

-How lovely to see you.

-Betty! Dad, how are you?

1:31:421:31:46

-All the better for seeing you. What's this tin sailor business?

-I was so envious of Betty in hers.

1:31:461:31:53

That's splendid. That's pretty good.

1:31:531:31:56

-The rotten things I said to you - I should have known!

-I was more scared about fooling you than the others!

1:31:561:32:03

-What are you doing?

-Kissing my mother-in-law.

-Who are you?

1:32:031:32:08

-Your son-in-law.

-Who is this man?

-My husband.

-Your husband?

1:32:081:32:13

-God bless my soul! Will you stay for breakfast?

-Thank you.

-Charles?

1:32:131:32:19

Yes, I'm ravenous! Made this morning, Miss Sally.

1:32:191:32:23

-Oh, Reynolds!

-We shall want two more places. Miss Sally and her husband,

1:32:231:32:28

-Mr...?

-Garrick.

-Have a cigarette while you're waiting.

-Thanks.

1:32:281:32:34

-Will you...?

-No, thank you.

1:32:341:32:36

-I must be dreaming. I thought I saw a swastika.

-You did. That saved Sally's life.

1:32:361:32:43

-How?

-Not now, Mother. It's far too long a story.

1:32:431:32:48

-Let me see.

-Of course.

-Did you know about this?

1:32:481:32:51

- About him? - No, about Sally and the swastika.

1:32:511:32:56

-The Colonel invented Sally from Unter den Linden.

-How could you!

1:32:561:33:01

Sorry. It had to be done. But it's over now. The Sally Maitland myth has been exploded.

1:33:011:33:08

There's one thing you don't know. Not even you, Colonel. Something that justified deceiving all of you.

1:33:081:33:16

I heard Ribbentrop tell the Fuhrer the British were decadent and would not fight. You think I'd stand that?

1:33:161:33:23

Not bloody likely!

1:33:231:33:25

THEY LAUGH

1:33:251:33:28

Wartime thriller set aboard a ship bound for Canada from Britain, in which an undercover agent is approached by a Nazi spy with a scheme to sabotage a British convoy in Nova Scotia.
