This 1957 " Lifeboat" type ship disaster film stars Tyrone Power, Mai Zetterling and Lloyd Nolan. A stray mine sinks a luxury liner and all but thirty or so passengers drown. There are many survivors for such a small lifeboat, so the captain decides amid protest to jettison the injured, elderly or frail passengers, including women, overboard. His reasoning is that this will save the rest. Based on a true story.
