Eternal Sea, The

Based on the life of Rear Admiral John Madison Hoskins, The Eternal Sea is a stirring drama of one man's selfless dedication to the U.S. Navy. Eager to command a ship during World War II, Hoskins (Sterling Hayden, Dr. Strangelove, Johnny Guitar) is finally assigned to the Princeton, but loses his leg when the ship is destroyed by Japanese fighter plans. After being returned stateside, Hoskins refuses to consider retirement, and stubbornly insists that he be allowed to command the newly built Princeton.

With the support of his faithful wife (Alexis Smith), Hoskins must overcome not only his own disability but - perhaps the greater challenge - the mindset of his military superiors, who assume he is physically unfit to command a ship.
