Full movie description "Torpedoed":Trouble is brewing in the banana republic of Bianco for both His Excellency, El Presidente, and the British Consul, Brant. Rebels, led by Diego De Costa, the trusted "Minister of the Marines and the Customs" and Lieutenant Enricquo, the gunnery officer of the small republic's one battleship, have taken over the battleship, and the town. Most of the British citizens have taken refuge at the Consulate or have been evacuated to the small cruiser in Bianco's port, the "H. M. S. Audacious." But there are two major issues; the Consul's daughter, Pamela, and Canadian Lieutenant Bill Armstrong have been kidnapped by the rebels and now held hostage on the battleship "El Mirante," and El Presidente was visiting the consulate when the war broke out and is now under the protective custody of the British Empire. De Costa informs the "Audacious" commander, Captain Markham, that if El Presidete is not turned over to the rebels in six hours, the 15-inch guns of the battleship will blow the Consulate ...
Reviews of the TorpedoedIf you want a well-produced, slightly stodgy British movie, you can go to producer Herbert Wilcox with a sense of assurance. For this movie he imported three slightly over-ripe American stars: Richard Greene, as the handsome young naval lieutenant; H.B. Warner as the stiff-upper-lip British consul; and Noah Beery as El Presidente del Republica Bannannania, herein called "Bianco". Sheila Terry as Warner's daughter is the love interest.
It all starts with an attempted coup. Beery is dining with Wilcox at the consulate, while Greene is escorting Miss Terry from the local British cruiser. The last two are arrested and held by the rebels in varying degrees danger. Finally, the British ship begins a duel with the rebel's ship and are, of course, victorious.
The problem with this movie, aside from its flag-waving corniness is that it is all over too quickly. Once the British guns start to shoot, it's all settled but the order to send out the boats to pick up the survivors. The cooperation of the British Navy (they supplied the HMS Royal Oak to stand in for the rebels' ship; it was sunk about six weeks into World War Two) may have been impelled by the nascent British rearmament, as a plea for more funds to build ships.
It received a very early airing on US television, in May of 1940. The title song "Red, White and Blue" indicates that it may have been intended for export before completed. Other than that, it's been difficult to find, mostly because no one really cared.... nor should they, particularly.
