56.5
Hearts in Bondage
A historical account, with fictional characters, of the events leading up to and during the battle between the ironclad ships The Monitor and the Merrimac during the US Civil War. Northern Naval Officer Kenneth is dishonorably discharged after he sinks his ship rather than burn it as ordered by his superiors. His Uncle John Ericsson, the designer of the Monitor, manages to use some of his influence to have Kenneth return to duty on the Monitor. In the climatic battle sequence between the Monitor and the Merrimac, filmed very realistically, Kenneth kills a Confederate officer on the Merrimac, who turns out to be the brother of his fiancee Constance. The two lovers become estranged, but Abe Lincoln himself helps to bring the couple back together.
