Sink the Bismarck! is a 1960 black-and-white war film based on the book The Last Nine Days of
the Bismarck by C. S. Forester, and recounts the true story of the Royal Navy's attempts to
find and sink the famous German battleship during the Second World War.
In 1941, the German battleship Bismarck leaves its base in Norway bound for the trans-Atlantic
convoy routes. The British know that it must be hunted down and destroyed, and send a large
naval force after her. The film depicts that hunt, including the sinking of HMS Hood, which
culminates in the final destruction of the Bismarck by several British ships. Much of the
action of the film takes place not at sea, but in the Royal Navy operations centre deep below
Whitehall, centering on the newly-appointed Director of Operations, Captain Shepard and his
staff, particularly a WREN officer, Second Officer Anne Davies. Embittered because his last
ship was sunk, he is initially aggressive towards them, but Shepard comes to increasingly
rely on Davies's coolness and skill to plot the operation against the Bismarck. By the end
of the film, he and Davies are on friendly terms (within professional limits) and he asks
her to be his personal assistant. He then invites her to dinner (which turns out to be
breakfast, as they've both lost track of time).
