|Title||:||Damn the Defiant!|
|Stars||:||Alec Guinness, Dirk Bogarde, Anthony Quayle, Tom Bell,|
H.M.S. Defiant’s crew is part of a fleet-wide movement to present a petition of grievances to the Admiralty. Violence must be no part of it. The continual sadism of Defiant’s first officer Lieutenant Scott-Padget (Sir Dirk Bogarde) makes this difficult, and when Captain Crawford (Sir Alec Guinness) is disabled, the chance for violence increases.
