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

The Copperfin submarine seen in this movie was an exact scale model of a real US Navy submarine. However, for reasons of military security, equipment and operating mechanisms were of varying kinds and varieties so the enemy could not identify accurate explicit interior details of US Navy submarines. As this movie was made during the Second World War, this filmic subterfuge was done in order to confuse America's World War II wartime enemies. See more »

Of course this movie is in baseline point of view a propaganda movie for the on going war, but i still think that it's a nice piece of movie. And it contains some realy nice clips.
The underwather shots was taken in a pool(probley plastic) but that doesen't meen that it a bad movie, you have to consider that in 43 they diden't have so well equited underwather cameras, so the choice of doing it in a regular watherpool was a choice that was correct for that time. Today we would probley not even think about doing a shot like that. Times changes.
The movie is not so much realistic when it comes to the conditions on the sub, its more of an "holly"-movie(evryone likes it, and the songs are happy). What i know they diden't play much songs over the speaker system on the subs(correct me if i am wrong), I whant to recommend the movie to evryone that whants to se an 1940 USA-Movie.
