A submarine newly commissioned is damaged in the opening days of WW II. A captain, looking for a command insists he can get it to a dockyard and captain it. Going slowly to this site, they find a stranded group of Army nurses and must take them aboard. How bad can it get? Trying to get a primer coat on the sub, they have to mix white and red in order to have enough. When forced to flee the dock during an air attack, they find themselves with the world's only Pink submarine, still with 5 women in the tight quarters of a submarine. Written by

Jeff Chandler was originally offered the role that went to Cary Grant. Grant himself was at first reluctant to take it, knowing he was much too old to play a wartime captain. See more »
When initially leaving the dock, the ship's chief engineer told the captain they only had 1 of the 4 engines available. Yet when they pulled out he gave the order "all ahead 1/3rd, starboard 1/3rd". This would take two different engines on two different props. See more »
