    Punishment meted out aboard the H.M.S. Defiant, a British Man-O-War. Although this is a Hollywood depiction it is nevertheless true. British naval protocol during this period was harsh. Not only were men pressed into service against their will but some Captains dealt out punishment for the slightest infraction.

    Note the actors swaying back and forth on board ship, the wave action was strong.

    Alec Guinness (Obi-Wan) went on to win an Oscar for 1957's "The Bridge Over The River Kwai, a Tony, BAFTA, and two Golden Globes.

    Dirk Bogarde, the sadistic First Officer, won two BAFTA's.
