No ship of the United States Navy has ever borne the name USS Tiger Shark or Tigershark. See more »
In the beginning when Cmdr. White steps on board his moth balled sub the sign on it says SSN 305. Although it's a fictional movie there really was a SSN 305 which was the USS Skate. The Skate served in and survived WWII. There has never been a USS Tigershark in US history. See more »
The Nightclub in Submarine Command was the Club Royal
The nightclub pictured in Submarine Command was the Club Royal located at 3rd and C street in downtown San Diego. The wallpaper was black with chartreuse horses pictured, the booths were red. Walter Fuller was the band leader and played trumpet. This nightclub was owned at the time by Albert Bertolino who appears briefly in the bar scene. His wife,Una was the attractive blond seated at the bar. William Holden and Nancy Olsen were on the set at the time and were kind enough to visit with me and my family during the filming of this scene at a restaurant next door to the club. Third street at that time consisted of one bar after another. These clubs were razed in the latter part of the 20th century.
