Trivia

Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster did not get along during filming, partly due to Lancaster making jokes about Gable's age. There was one major argument when Gable refused to allow the crucial plot development of Lancaster's character to take control of the submarine, because he felt this went against the image he had built up for more than twenty years at MGM. After refusing to work for two days, Gable eventually agreed to return to the studio when it was decided that his character would fall ill, necessitating Lancaster taking command. See more »

Goofs

Near the end of the film, when they finally realize that there is a Japanese submarine nearby shooting torpedoes at them, the first time we see inside the Japanese sub, a close-up of its periscope shows that it has an air outlet plug marked "air-out." (There are drying inlet and outlet plugs on periscopes that are used during maintenance to force dry nitrogen through the mechanism to dry out the interior of the periscope.) But it's a Japanese sub, so the words would not be in English. See more »

Quotes

Lt. Jim Bledsoe: It's one thing to drill a crew for fighting. But when you duck a Jap sub, they wonder why they should break their backs on drills when the captain has no stomach for attacking. What does he want? Obedience? Efficiency? Or the best drilled cowards in the Navy?
Commander Richardson: [after a long pause] Mr. Bledsoe, tell them I'm doubling the drills, starting tomorrow.
Lt. Jim Bledsoe: Yes sir.
[He starts to leave]
Lt. Jim Bledsoe: You might as well know, sir, I don't believe it.
Commander Richardson: Believe what?
Lt. Jim Bledsoe: That you ran away from that sub from cowardice.

Excellent Submarine Movie
31 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The interaction between Gable and Lancaster is something to behold. That and the story, the tension and the realism of men under attack. Yes, the special effects are not to the "high" standards of today, but they serve the story well and do not detract from the important drama. As one poster said, this movie would be ill served in color as would Das Boot in B&W. An overall excellent adaptation of the book and as far as the points not explained, all the better. I hate movies that stop the action to then explain to a character what that character is about to experience/see/do, etc. Give the movie goer credit for being able to fill in the gaps. A must have for any WWII movie collection.
