Edit
Trivia While many movies of this type add complications to the rescue, this one simplifies it. In real life several more ships were involved, and when the diving bell jammed on the fourth trip, several dives were made before it could be freed. The bell was also sent on a fifth trip to confirm that no other compartments contained survivors. See more »
Goofs While US Navy crews were not fully integrated in the 1930s, black men did serve, as shown in this film, in the mess. See more »
