Alternate Versions

This documentary series was so popular that, several years later, in 1954, the footage from the 26 episodes was edited, and a 35mm negative was prepared, for a theatrical release in a 98 minute version. During the next decade this version was released in many foreign countries, including some of the former Axis powers. This gave audiences the chance to see the footage on a large screen and hear Richard Rodger's famous symphonic score in higher fidelity from the large theater speakers. See more »

Stands the test of time
9 September 2002 | by wilstreamSee all my reviews

Even in Black and White, Victory at Sea stands as a TV masterpiece. Their production techniques a half century ago using a dramatic musical score to allow the action to flow in lieu of unnecessary chatter, but with the occasional powerful voice of Leonard Graves to tie the scenes together was a model for NFL Films.
