The Shipbuilders is a 1943 British drama film directed by John Baxter and starring Clive Brook, Morland Graham and Nell Ballantyne.[1] The film is set in a Clyde shipyard in the build-up to the Second World War.[2] It was made by British National Films and shot at Elstree Studios. It was based on the 1935 novel of the same name by George Blake.[3]


Critical reception

TV Guide gave the film two out of four stars, calling it a "Well-made story."[4] while Allmovie noted "a rare film of true merit from prolific British "quota quickie" director John Baxter," concluding that "Actual footage shipbuilders at work give this hastily assembled patriotic exercise a veneer of reality."[5]
