Strange Cargo (1936 film)

Strange Cargo is a 1936 British crime film directed by Lawrence Huntington and starring Kathleen Kelly, George Mozart and Moore Marriott. The film is notable for an early performance by George Sanders who went on to success in Hollywood. It was made at Elstree Studios for release by Paramount Pictures.[1] It is also known by the alternative title Breakers Ahead. Criminal gun runners smuggle illegal arms onto a British ship at a South American port. (The film shares a title—but nothing else—with the 1940 Clark Gable/Joan Crawford drama Strange Cargo.)
