The Eternal Sea is directed by John H. Auer and stars Sterling Hayden, Alexis Smith and Ben Cooper. After an American naval officer loses his leg at the Battle of Leyte Gulf, he resists attempts to retire him and continues in the service after learning to cope with his disability. He goes on to be promoted to admiral and commands an aircraft carrier during the Korean War.

Make Haste to Live is a film noir thriller film directed by William A. Seiter, and stars Dorothy McGuire and Stephen McNally. Crystal Benson (Dorothy McGuire), a small-town newspaper owner, fears her former husband, Steve Blackford (Stephen McNally), is stalking her. In flashbacks, Crystal relates her secret past: While young, she marries charismatic mobster Steve. When he grows increasingly violent, Crystal runs away and assumes a new identity. When a prostitute accidentally dies in Steve's house and Crystal cannot be found, he's jailed for her murder. Now, having served his time, Steve comes to town for revenge.
