There are a few similar movies and television episodes for this story: The Twilight Zone's "On Thursday We Leave For Home" centers on a group of people stranded so long on a planet, their leader is hesitant for them to be rescued, and even questions if it's actually a rescue at all; and the movie 20,000 Leagues Beneath The Sea about a mad scientist who's learned to survive on an underwater vessel, which includes playing god with his crew and "guests" who turn out possibly being prisoners, as well as particular foods derived from fish and octopus.

I am reaching way back into my memory for this one, for I saw it on T.V. in 1981 and haven't heard anything about it since, except in 1992 when a co-worker and I got on the subject of shipwrecks and somehow we both remembered this movie from our pasts. We were so vague on the details we had both thought it might have been a dream until we corroborated each other's memory!
Brilliant how an "offshoot" society--a microcosm of our own, with all the various social strata--was represented. There was even a sub-sub-society, the "Bow People," who terrorized those in the main part of the ship.
Also, chilling how the ship's brass were "relieved" to find out that Hitler had been defeated--not even realizing that they had established their own police state far below the surface of the ocean!
