SL FILM REVIEW:
'Liebo at' Stars Hodiak, Ban khead

Architecture Auditorium
By DICK WOLF
With a subtleness seldom seen
on the screen, Lifeboat combines
some of the better aspects of both
the stage and the film. First, it
focuses the attention of the view-
er on a limited number of actors,
whose character development is
uninterrupted by the intrusion of
superfluous personalities or rapid
changes of environment.
Cast adrift in the Atlantic
after their ship was torpedoed
by a German U boat, the eight
characters form a heterogeneous
group which is gradually coa-
lesced into a structural unit by
the exigencies of circumstance.
This group, rather then being
enlarged as the film progresses,
is diminished either by the sea
or group action-a variation on
the usual enlargement of per-
sonnel that often takes place
in the movies.
ONE of the passengers is the

captain of the submarine which
had been sunk in the action. His
knowledge of seamanship offers
the best chance for rescue, there-
fore, prisoner becomes captor by
virtue of the skills he offers. The
others, comprising a female so-
phisticate, a wealthy manufac-
turer, four seamen, and a nurse,
have to order themselves into new
social and economic positions be-
fore they can work successfully
as a unit. The patterns they fol-
low and the ensuing frictions of
adjustment comprises the plot ac-
tion.
Second, the use of the cam-
era allows the movement of the
sea to be used as a background
to the story while retaining the
intimacy of the stage. A variety
of camera angles also draws the
audience closely into the plot.
Thus the camera overcomes the
difficulty raised by the stage
which restricts the audience
only to a box view.
