  Lifeboat (1944)
Lifeboat was Alfred Hitchcock's only film for 20th Century Fox.
Slezak is very good as the tricky German, deviously keeping a stash of water to himself while the others struggle against chronic thirst, and at one point murdering a fellow survivor to keep his water supply a secret.
The film has a lot of political and propagandist subtext, and many people have viewed it as an allegory of the Nazi rise in Europe (Slezak is the metaphor for Nazi Germany; the others metaphors for surrounding nations duped into believing that the Nazi neighbour in their midst is helpful and trustworthy).

 Movie Info for Lifeboat on MSN Movies
Seeking a creative challenge after several years' worth of fairly elaborate melodramas, director Alfred Hitchcock stages all of the action in Lifeboat in one tiny boat, adrift in the North Atlantic.
The boat holds eight survivors of a Nazi torpedo attack: sophisticated magazine writer/photographer Tallulah Bankhead, communistic-seaman John Hodiak, nurse Mary Anderson, mild-mannered radio-operator Hume Cronyn, seriously wounded Brooklynese stoker William Bendix, insufferable-capitalist Henry Hull, fl-steward Canada Lee and half-mad passenger Heather Angel, who carries the body of her dead baby.
If you're wondering how Hitchcock was able to make his characteristic cameo appearance in Lifeboat keep an eye on that newspaper in the closing scenes.
