Arrogant, irascible, and misogynistic professor of phonetics Henry Higgins believes that the accent and tone of one's voice determines a person's prospects in society. He boasts to a new acquaintance, Colonel Hugh Pickering--also an expert in phonetics--that he could teach any woman to speak so "properly" that he could pass her off as a duchess at an embassy ball. He chooses as an example a sassy, young working-class London flower seller from the slums, Eliza Doolittle, who has a strong Cockney accent. Can Higgins turn Eliza into a duchess? And will Eliza care to remain a lady for long? When the humble flower girl blossoms into the toast of London's elite, her teacher may have a lesson or two to learn himself

The boat is manned by the ill-mannered bachelor, Charlie. Together they embark on a long difficult journey, without any comfort. Rose grows determined to assist in the British war effort and presses Charlie until he finally agrees and together they steam up the Ulana encountering an enemy fort, raging rapids, bloodthirsty parasites and an endlessly branching stream which always seems to lead them to what appear to be impenetrable swamps.

Drama about two ship captains stalking each other in the South Atlantic during World War II. When an American destroyer detects a German U-boat prowling beneath the surface, its captain (Mitchum) immediately pursues the enemy.

As both men try to outwit each other, the chase becomes a deadly game of cat and mouse in which any mistake can bring defeat and death. Alternating between both ships and their crews, the film offers an impartial view of war that portrays the American and German captains as professional soldiers who respect each other's abilities. Gripping tale of two men who are determined not to sacrifice their dignity or honor even though duty demands that they must destroy each other
