Made during World War II, this chronicles a voyage of a U.S. submarine on a secret mission to the very shores of Japan. Much of the film is spent developing the cast of characters that populate the sub. Written by

) were portrayed by the children of this movie's director, Delmer Daves
. Daughter Debby Cassidy was played by daughter Deborah Daves
whilst son Michael Cassidy was played by son Michael Daves
. Both children's character's first names were the same as their real first names (i.e. Debby/Deborah and Michael) and both cameo performances were uncredited. See more
On more then one occasion the submarine is referred to as a ship, once by the captain himself. Apart from a brief effort by the US Navy in the 1950s to refer to submarines as ships, they have always been "boats" to the officers and crews who work on them. See more
