According to actor Gene Evans, he was asked by director Samuel Fuller to help Bella Darvi with her dialogue. Others, especially star Richard Widmak, disliked her and Fuller convinced the reluctant Evans that Darvi liked him enough to make it a plausible idea. Darvi was happy with Evans' coaching and gave him a birthday present of silver pieces monogrammed DFZ. Evans later found out that Darvi was Zanuck's mistress, which is why she got the part.

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 saw this movie when it was released in theatre. I still remember how much fun it was to watch a submarine crew try to bring down a big bomber carrying the Atomic bomb with every weapon they could muster, including handguns. It had plenty of action for the time, although those used to long periods of action may find themselves disappointed. There are a couple of fairly exciting firefights, not including the final desperate attempt to save the US from being blamed for dropping an A-bomb on Korea and starting WW3. I'd like to see it again but haven't seen it in a long time..Hope it can be repeated on TV .I would definitely buy it if I had the chance..
