The Cockleshell Heroes

1955, Movie, NR, 97 mins

Major Stringer (Jose Ferrer, who also directed) leads a small group of Royal Marines on a secret raid in which they travel downriver by kayak (two men per) to the docks of Bordeaux to plant mines on Nazi vessels. During the assault, all but two of the men are killed. THE COCKLESHELL HEROES is an intense, exciting war drama with a core of tragedy. Ferrer and Trevor Howard, who plays Stringer's second-in-command, are superb as feuding mission leaders whose mutual respect forms a deep bond. The film was coproduced by Albert Broccoli, the man behind the James Bond series.
