The Middle Watch DVD Cover

Debonair screen veteran Jack Buchanan, Norwegian beauty Greta Gynt and monocled character player Fred Emney are among the many stars of this riotous comedy adapting a play by writer and Naval officer Stephen King-Hall, and noted novelist, playwright and historian Ian Hay. The Middle Watch is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Through a series of unforeseen events, two glamorous young ladies find that they are obliged to spend the night on board the battleship HMS Falcon, where they have been attending a 'bon voyage' reception. At first it seems that Captain Randall will be able to keep them concealed, but then the Admiral unexpectedly arrives on board and orders the ship to sea. The result is maritime mayhem!
