The Gift Horse synopsis

Eight years after his court martial, Lt. Cmdr. Hugh Alginon Fraser (Trevor Howard) returns to the Royal Navy to serve England during World War II. Given command of a decrepit destroyer and assigned a motley team of seamen -- which includes a Canadian first officer (James Donald), a Cockney sailor (Richard Attenborough) and an American cook (Sonny Tufts) -- Fraser initially clashes with his new officers and men. However, commander and crew forge a bond as they prepare for battle.
