The film utilizes an oft-used storyline of the war movie genre which has two soldiers in love with the same girl. See more »
When the submarine submerges after being ambushed by the Q-boat, they are lying on the bottom and the captain passes the word that 'the smoking lamp is lit' for ten minutes. Since WW-II era submarines did not have any form of air purification equipment on board, no submarine commander would ever authorize smoking on board whilst underwater, as this would quickly use up the limited air supply on board the boat. Smoking was only allowed while surfaced and the men had to be outside the hull, either on deck or a specific section of the after section of the conning tower known colloquially as the 'cigarette deck'.

Great acting and award winning special effects makes up for average story.
Crash Dive was one of many films to be released during WWII. Its pluses are good acting, supplied by Tyrone Power, Anne Baxter and Dana Andrews and award winning special effects. The story takes place in and around our then American sub base in New London Ct. In between battles with the German navy, a love story evolves with Tyrone Power and Dana Andrews after the same woman played by Anne Baxter.James Gleason is a bonus as one of the sub's seasoned crew memebers.
