Once three childhood friends: now a ruthless, domineering woman is married to an alcoholic D.A., and a returning companion who was the only witness to her murder of her rich aunt seventeen years earlier.
Navy officers fall for Ann. She has her own plans. USS Pensacola is struck during a last dive drill, there is an attempt to rescue. The USS Dolphin (D-1) and her crew depart from Connecticut to San Diego via the Panama Canal. They come into troubles.
The submarine "D-1" in the film was actually the U.S.S. Dolphin (SS-169). She was commissioned at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in 1932 and then moved to San Diego where she was home-ported at the time of this film. During WWII she performed three war patrols from 1941 to 1942, then served as a training sub out of Pearl Harbor until 1944. She was moved to the sub base at New London, CT and served as a school boat until being decommissioned in October, 1945 and sold for scrap in August, 1946. See more »
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 »
Given the fact that every sub in this movie ends up at the bottom of the ocean floor during sea trials I would venture to guess that Admiral Karl Dönitz saw this and figured, "Acht Di leiber! Our U-Boats vill annnnnhiliate zose Americahns!" This would lull anyone into thinking our sub fleet was sub par. But technically, this isn't a bad movie... it's just it's so predictable. George Brent's acting is as bland as the Navy's powdered eggs and lovable lug Wayne Morris is a near-idiot that somehow makes Chief (the Navy sure must've been different than when I was in it--- no board and no initiation!). Frank McHugh does a swell job of playing Lucky, a symbiotic twin of the character Droopy he played 3 years earlier in HERE COMES THE NAVY. Nice stock shots of the Panama Canal and much better than the usual Warner Bros. middling level special effects. All in all, I hope that this was planned as a cunning piece of disinformation rather than a testimonial to the skills of the U.S. Navy in the mid-1930's. I wonder if Swede Monson ever saw this?
