Trivia

The colony of small, stalked plants that Hank finds in the sand and from which he collects a sample is Penicillus, which goes by the common name of Merman's Shaving Brush, Neptune's Shaving Brush, or Shaving Brush Plant. It's a type of green alga commonly found in the shallows of the Caribbean. See more »

Goofs

Standish skin dives to rescue a sub in trouble, to a depth of 150 feet. When he returns to the surface, he swims up rapidly. As a professional, expert diver, Standish should know he'd be risking a case of the bends when not decompressing on his way up. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Craig Mosby: What the hell's going on around here?
Deckhand: Swing him over. Set him right on the deck. Easy, now.
Dr. Craig Mosby: Well who's the idiot in this diving suit?
Dr. Orin Hillyard: [emerging from the diving suit] Dr. Mosby, I presume.

Forgotten film deserves it
12 November 2005 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

This is a gem of disaster from the waning days of MGM. It seems there was a decision that the only way to beat the loss of ticket sales to television was to out-stupid it. With a logic straight out of "Rocky Jones" and a script from Ignoramus Inc., this film busts the audience's tolerance and drives over it.

This film must have been dumped by MGM towards the end of production. Listen to the sound. All the scenes at the home base of the sub team have incredibly bad sound for a major studio release. They must have decided that it wasn't worth the cost of rehiring the actors to re-dub their voices so they left the terrible sound.

The guinea pigs were so embarrassed by this film that they never acted again.
