The aircraft carrier used in the film, CV-21 USS Boxer, never received any major modernization, and thus throughout her career (1945-1969) retained the classic appearance of a World War II Essex-class aircraft carrier ship. On 10 March 1948, she was the site of the first landing of a Navy jet aircraft (the FJ-1 Fury) aboard an aircraft carrier. She was also scheduled to be the prime recovery vessel for the Gemini 8 mission in March, 1966. This opportunity was missed, however, when Gemini 8 had an in-flight emergency and landed in the Western Pacific instead. 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.
