The film was initially banned in France "on political grounds." An article noted that France had also banned Soviet films with political themes, and that "a number of European countries are sensitive to films with political themes and refuse them exhibition permits rather than rouse the ire of either the U.S. or Russia."

Captain Adam Jones:
Look, uh, look before we go any further... exactly what country do you men represent?
We represent many countries... as private individuals. We are scientists, former statesmen, businessmen. All volunteers. Acting independently for a common cause. Against a common enemy.

I thought the movie was good for it's era. Much better than some of the other fiction movies of it's time. The submarine scenes were very good. Especially the detail of water trickling down the periscope cylinder when they were submerged.
I too wondered where they were disposing of the buckets of water when they were supposed to be running silent. Again the scene was out of sequence.
Also the scene where Richard yells periscope up to look for the enemy sub, and they are surfacing. I thought it looked funny seeing the sub on top of the water and Richard is looking out the periscope.
Again good movie for it's time.
