The Bedford Incident (1965)























Starring:
  • Sidney Poitier
  • Richard Widmark
  • James MacArthur
IMDB.com
Richard Widmark plays a hardened cold-warrior and captain of the American destroyer USS Bedford. Sidney Poitier is a reporter given permission to interview the captain during a routine patrol. Poitier gets more than he bargained for when the Bedford discovers a Soviet sub in the depths and the captain begins a relentless pursuit, pushing his crew to the breaking point. This one's grim tension to the end.

As I am a HUGE Sidney Poitier, when I saw this movie(unfortunately, elsewhere..), I immediately snarfed a copy. Definitely one of THE better Cold War era/Sidney Poitier films.

Visit the Museum of Black Cult Cinema for additional information and digital media.
