Trivia

Two cast members in studio records/casting call lists did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie. These were (with their character names): Ronald Reagan (Paul) and Broderick Crawford (Mike). Reagan is billed 6th in Daily Variety's preview cast list, indicating he was in the preview print. In addition, his character is mentioned in the pressbook as pivotal and a friend of Ann since childhood. However, none of the reviews mention him or his character, in all likelyhood because he was cut from the final released print. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the movie Naval personnel are shown wearing their covers (hats) indoors. In the U.S. Navy covers are only worn indoors if a person is on watch, therefore almost every occurrence in the movie is incorrect. See more »

"Great Pre-War Navy Movie"
23 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Submarine D-1" is a typical but terrific Warner Brothers, pre-WW2 movie on the glory of the U.S. Navy and in particular the submarine service. It has a great cast lead by Pat O'Brien, George Brent, Wayne Morris, and Frank McHugh but does not have Broderick Crawford among its players.

"Submarine D-1" contains great performances by Pat O'Brien as the Chief Petty Officer, Wayne Morris as the cocky sailor who finally matures into a first-rate CPO, and George Brent as the dedicated and somewhat fatherly submarine captain. Frank McHugh is also on hand as Warner Brothers' guaranteed laugh-getter for sure-fire comic relief. Henry O'Neil is well-cast as the wise-old admiral.

"Submarine D-1" is loaded with action, thrills, and comedy but contrary to many film sources Broderick Crawford is not in the film. I watched the entire film from beginning to end and can absolutely verify that he does not appear in this otherwise great old movie.
