When the German U-Boat surfaces near the U.S. coast, it is attacked by American bombers. The first two shots of the stock footage utilized show the attacking aircraft from the sub commander's view, the first through binocular- boxing on screen, are a trio of Lockheed Hudsons. But the overhead shot of the attack shows three Martin PBM Mariner flying boats, and then bombs are shown dropping out of a bomb-bay which the PBMs did not have. See more »
The first person we see in this movie is Ludwig Stossel, best remembered as the father of Lou Gehrig in PRIDE OF THE YANKEES. He is German, naturlich, and has spent the last twenty years teaching in Milwaukee, so of course, his son is George Sanders with that British Public School Accent. Oh well.
Still, the story is a good one, based on a true incident, and for an apparent B movie, the acting, direction and photography -- by the wonderful and sadly forgotten Lucien Andriot -- are well up to par. Notice, for example, whose picture is on the dartboard at SS headquarters. And besides Mr. Stossel, we see some wonderful supporting actors, including Anna Sten, Ward Bond and Sig Ruman. So, while this is not a great movie, it is certain worth your time
