I recall seeing this movie as a kid where some people are stranded in a lifeboat and they end up having to make decisions about who stays in the boat and who leaves ( as a matter of making the boat lighter or lack of food). I remember an old lady in the water with a life jacket. Then a ship comes and rescues them after they had left some people to die.

I always thought it was Lifeboat. But after watching Lifeboat today, I realized these movies are not the same.

Any ideas?

It's called Abandon Ship - 1957 (aka Seven Waves Away). It is one of my favorite Tyrone Power films. It hasn't been released yet on DVD.

I remember watching that in english class in high school. I always thought it was Hitchcock's Lifeboat. Then I watched Lifeboat and it was a different movie and I always wondered what the movie I'd seen was called. Thanks flixtime :up:

I think I have seen this. Do they decide to dump an injured girl off the boat, and her father goes with her because he can't bare to leave his daughter?

Wasn't there a Hitchcock movie similar to this? Where was his cameo in that?
