The Sea Wolves
 

 

 

 

The film has special interest to me because it was portrayed on real events not released until 1978. The daring and pure courage of these exploits draw breath. Itís not a very serious film and has plenty of comic events but once you sit back and consider the content it all starts to sink in. If you can just sit back and watch the film for what it is you will really enjoy it - it's not there to be critiqued.

The film is dedicated to Earl Mountbatten (former beloved viceroy of India and an honorary commander of the Calcutta Light Horse). He was assassinated by the cowardly IRA in 1979 by planting a bomb on his boat while he was in holiday in the South of Ireland. His grandson, Nicholas, aged 14 and Paul Maxwell were also killed in the blast.
