Excellent character development distinguishes this tale about a diverse group of people on an ocean liner and how their lives become intertwined. Lowe is a gambler, on the run from some bad guys, who is also looking after the interests of Moran. Halliday is a straight banker who gets

involved with dancer Nissen, but goes back to his wife, Loy, at the end. Lowe, in the meantime, is dodging bullets--in one good scene he is on the run in the engine room. But he escapes and when the ship reaches his destination, he thinks he is home free. Not really, since the British authorities

are there watching him closely. Bevan is on the screen too much as the deck steward throwing out wisecracks, but he can't come up with anything funny enough to help the film. The movie does have an appealing look to it, however, and it won an Academy Award for Best Interior Decoration.
