Time Out says

This is the one about the martinet captain (Finch) and the mutinous crew. But given that the setting is the Depression year of 1931, that the captain of the merchant ship feeds his crew rotten potatoes to cut down on expenses, and that the film is told in flashback from the moment when the merchant company offers a grateful eulogy on his retirement, it is by no means uninteresting. Brightly scripted and well acted (aside from the colourless Anthony Steel), it takes some sharpish digs at exploitation and the class system, only partly negated by the cop-out ending.
