In the Mediterranean in 1941 the Italians start using underwater chariots to mine the undersides of allied ships. Explosives expert Lionel Crabbe arrives in Gibralter to organise defences, but finds only two British divers available to help him. Even more worrying, it seems likely that the Italians are secretly using neutral Spain across the bay as their key base. Written by

This movie went into production about a year after the much publicized disappearance of the movie's real life lead character, Lionel "Buster" Crabb OBE, GM (born 28 January 1909). Lionel Crabb was presumed dead on 19 April 1956 due to an alleged encounter from the Cold War. See more »
A plane crashes into the sea apparently just offshore from the team's base, but when Crabb goes out to search for the wreckage he takes his boat nearly half way to North Africa. See more »
They don't make them like this anymore. Rousing drama action based on the real life exploits of British Navy Lieutenant Lionel Crabbe and his contributions to underwater demolition work during World War II and later on in salvaging operations.
World War II history buffs will appreciate the military technology depicted in this film and the impact it caused to Allied as well as Axis shipping.
Exciting underwater action combined with a decent cast and good dialogue contribute to the suspense.
