Duel of great stars into a submarine : a veteran Gable and an impulsive Lancaster
27 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

This interesting underwater drama concerns about an exciting battle of wits. Clark Gable stars as a veteran commander who is scheming to revenge during a dangerous voyage and solid Burt Lancaster as the second in command who attempts anticipate his every move. Tensions run high and rise between commandant Rich and Lt. Jim Bledsoe and the crew(Brad Dexter, Jack Warden, Don Rickles and 'Nick Cravat', usual pal of Lancaster), as they set out from Pearl Harbor to destroy a Japanese cruiser. The veteran sub commander risks his crew when he's looking for vengeance . The crew is pushed to the brink of death by risked mission executed by avenger captain whose former submarine the Japonese had to blow up.

This nail-biter is a tightly-knit drama centered on the sea maneuvers going after of Japan's mightiest battleship of the Pacific. The film is famous as one of the best WWII submarine movies, though some scenes at sea, however, suffer from the utilization of obvious models in a just as obvious studio tank. The motion picture is meticulously mounted by Robert Wise who always manages to make a course correction in the nick of time and deliver another direct success. Screenplay by John Gay from a book by commandant Edward Bleach.Atmospheric musical score by Franz Waxman and appropriate black and white cinematography by Rusell Harlan.

The film originated a big hit into submarine genre, along with : 'Torpedo run(1958)'by Joseph Pevney with Glenn Ford and Ernest Borgnine; 'Das Boot(1982)' by Wolfgang Petersen with Jurgen Prochnow;'Hunt for red october(1990)' by John McTiernan with Alec Baldwin and Sean Connery ; 'Crimson tide' by Tony Scott with Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman; 'K19' with Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson.
