Storyline

On December 6, 1941, Captain Yamanada of the Japanese aircraft carrier "Hiranamu", orders full steam ahead for Pearl Harbor. His ship encounters and sinks an American yacht and the single survivor, Sue Curry, is rescued by an American submarine, the "Sea Serpent", commanded by Commander Chris Warren. He hears her story and attempts to radio a warning to Pearl Harbor. Yamanada, hearing the signals, orders the airlines jammed, and then sends his son into the air to sink the sub. The attack fails, after the sub makes a crash dive, but they fail in their warning attempts. The next morning, December 7th, the men on the sub hear the story of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and devise a desperate plan to sink the Japanese carrier by letting the carrier know their position. The carrier comes in search of the submarine. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Everything But a Pink Submarine
7 December 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Marguerite Chapman is picked up by a submarine on its way to the Sea of Japan during the Second World War, and it looks like this movie was plundered for the Blake Edwards comedy OPERATION PETTICOAT almost twenty years later, except for the long spy subplot in which every Asian American crosses his eyes because he's a Jap spy.

It's a competently managed programmer for the era, but this sort of movie was fairly commonplace during the Second World War and the cheapness of the production shines through, both in the cast and the lighting -- there are lots of day-for-night shots, outdoors scenes shot during the day which we're supposed to think are at night because they were printed dark --- black cars with blacker shadows. See it or don't see it and your life won't be much different either way.
