Storyline

With posters featuring a stylized-drawing of Eva Six in a bikini, a tagline reading..."Temptation in Paradise...neither hell nor high heels could stop them", and a Dream Sequence Technical Adviser credit for Bob Marcucci, American-International once again proved it had no peers when it came to sleight-of-hand advertising selling a war-movie when war movies weren't selling. This one starts in the Pacific in 1943 when an American submarine staffed by the likes of Scott Brady, Jim Backus and Michael Dante (the old guns to get the old folks in) has a rendezvous with a cruiser to pick up an underwater demolition team comprised of the likes of Tab Hunter, Frankie Avalon, Gary Crosby and Jody McCrea (the young turks to get the kids in, which probably only worked in Southern California), and there is conflict right off as the sub crew feels like they are being denied a chance to revenge the sinking of a sister sub because they have to deliver Tab and Frankie to an island on a super-secret ...

So bad it isn't even good
29 April 2006 | by ombligoSee all my reviews

Where to start -- a singing war movie? well they do have FrankieAvelon, so why not.

Thurston Howell III as a Navy Chief? That's Jim Backus playing the tough guy.

The Wrong Sub... The target of the UDT is the Grayfish, SS-342. Except the SS342 was the Beleo class sub The Chopper. It never served in the Second World War (although commissioned during it) and was on active duty when the movie was made.

The Grayfish was also the star of perhaps the best WW2 Submarine movie ever made - Torpedo Run (made only five years before this stinker). In reality there never was a USS Grayfish

I could go on but what's the point.
