Goofs

As Lt. Ward Stewart arrives on the dock to meet his new command, two Gato class submarines are seen leaving the dock. From the camera on the dock, they are traveling at, roughly, full reverse (stern first) the shot then alternates several times to the boats obviously moving at, more or less, full ahead (bow first). It's pretty easy to tell which end is which on a WW2 era submarine. See more »

Great acting and award winning special effects makes up for average story.
16 January 1999 | by (Brea, Ca. 92821) – See all my reviews

Crash Dive was one of many films to be released during WWII. Its pluses are good acting, supplied by Tyrone Power, Anne Baxter and Dana Andrews and award winning special effects. The story takes place in and around our then American sub base in New London Ct. In between battles with the German navy, a love story evolves with Tyrone Power and Dana Andrews after the same woman played by Anne Baxter.James Gleason is a bonus as one of the sub's seasoned crew memebers.
