Trivia

It is somewhat ironic that Mark Brittain (Frank Sinatra) and Vic Rossiter (Anthony Franciosa) wore white covered hats while Erik Lauffnauer (Alf Kjellin wore a black covered hat. On a U-boat, the captain wore a white covered hat while the other officers wore a black covered hat. See more »

Goofs

When the submarine is beneath the Queen Mary and the liner starts her engines and propellers, a technician's hand is clearly visible shaking the stern of the U-Boat model back and forth in the prop wake. This may not be apparent on the pan/scan version, but is obvious on the new Blu-Ray hi-def transfer. See more »

A truly enjoyable adventure !
11 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a remarkable enjoyable adventure. I first saw this movie when I was a small boy of 8 years old. I have seen it several times since and I am still amazed by how much I like this movie. To an 8 year old this is a tale of adventure , risk , reward , and right over wrong. The musical soundtrack while limited is truly inspired by the plot. If you release yourself from the everyday roll of life and just let that little child in you come out with an awe of the impossible you will totally be absorbed by the picture. The acting is OK , the cloths dated , the bravado overacted but no matter how many things about this movie are just plain bad - the overall premise is inspiring . I am finding it hard to not give away any plot but I would not want to spoil this experience for anyone. Give it a try - you will not be disappointed.
