In the row of submarines tied up at the sub tender in San Diego as the "D-1" arrives alongside are the U.S.S. Shark (SS-174) "P3", U.S.S. Pike (SS-173) "P2", U.S.S. Tarpon (SS-175) "P4" and the U.S.S. Porpoise (SS-172) "P1". 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 »
"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.
