Survival on a Lifeboat 5 STARS gem~excellent~
PLOT: passengers try to survive on a lifeboat after a German sub torpedo's their ship.
the ATLANTIC and World War 2 is occurring. a LIFEBOAT takes on a variety of survivors....the excellent Tallulah Bankhead is Connie the reporter who donates her MINK to a freezing woman.....Jeff Chandler is the working man who passes the time playing a millionaire for money....All the survivors have a story but as they slowly die from starvation and dehydration the Nazi they took on is in the best shape....why? This is a play on the human spirit and the morals of each come into focus on the lifeboat. EXCELLENT plot and keeps you glued to the entire performance. 5 STARS all the way and Alfred Hitchock who directed the movie version introduces the audio.

Good needed a. better speaker
Good movie but Ms Bankhead speaks to fast. Difficult to follow. Had to really concentrate
better than expected
Would you listen to Lifeboat again? Why?
yes... I love the original movie and enjoyed that some of the same stars narrated this short story.
What did you like best about this story?
the narrators and the commercials....I am a classic movie buff & loves old advertising spots.
Any additional comments?
for the price these are some great short stories, perfect for a short ride or trip.
it was a refreshing change from the regular audio books I listen to. if you are a classic movie buff this rocks, also I have parents that remember when these were on the radio and told me about them. it is almost a trip back in time when technology was young.
