When a Soviet submarine gets stuck on a sandbar off the coast of a New England island, its commander (Theodore Bikel) orders his second-in-command, Lieutenant Rozanov (Alan Arkin), to get them moving again before there is an international incident. Rozanov seeks assistance from the island locals, including the police chief (Brian Keith) and a vacationing television writer (Carl Reiner), while trying to allay their fears of a Communist invasion by claiming he and his crew are Norwegian sailors.

MONTHLY MOVIE NIGHT @ GRAVES LIBRARY

There’s a new Movie Theater in town and the price is right–Free!  Graves Library offers  – Movie Night – once per month.  Please join us on Thursday, April 18 at 6:45 pm for a special showing of Master and Commander.  A special introduction to the movie will be given by Retired Vice Admiral, George Emery.

Loosly based on the book series written by Patrick O’Brian, Master and Commander starts out with the friendship between Captain Aubrey, R.N., and Stephen Maturin, ship’s surgeon and intelligence agent, against a thrilling backdrop of the Napoleonic wars. Details of a life aboard a man-of-war are faultlessly rendered: the conversational idiom of the officers in the ward room and the men on the lower deck, the food, the floggings, the mysteries of the wind and the rigging, and the roar of broadsides as the great ships close in battle.  (W.W. Norton)
