Corvette K-225 War Drama 1943 Randolph Scott
Stars: Randolph Scott, James Brown, Ella Raines
In Corvette K-225 it’s 1943, and Mac MacClain, Canadian Navy, has lost his ship and many men to a German torpedo. While waiting for a new ship, he befriends Joyce Cartwright, sister of one of his dead officers. We follow the building and launch of new Corvette K-225, the ‘HMCS Donnacona’. And who should be Mac’s new subaltern but Joyce’s other brother Paul, fresh out of the academy. Mac will do his best to make a good officer of Paul…if they both survive their hazardous sea duty.
Fun Fact: The Corvette was the Canadian name for a ship that would be classified as a destroyer escort. Their function was escorting American and Canadian supplies to the European theater.

Film critic Bosley Crowther reviewed Corvette K-225 , stating, “Randolph Scott gives a beautiful performance …” Yet, most of the review focused on the drama of the RCN corvettes at sea, as follows.
“In a virtually documentary treatment of life aboard the K-225, Producer Howard Hawks and Richard Rosson, director of the film, have realized the physical strain and torment of work in a rampant corvette. They have pictured with indubitable fidelity the discomforts of an escort vessel’s crew—the eternal tossing and rolling of the ship in a moderate sea; her plunging and gyrating in the grip of a North Atlantic gale, with tons of sea water pouring over her, battering and soaking every man.”
