Screen legends Clark Gable (Gone with the Wind, Teacher’s Pet) and Burt Lancaster (Elmer Gantry, The Train) star in this gripping WWII adventure-thriller that set a new standard for submarine pictures. “Rich” Richardson (Gable) is a hard-driving, dedicated submarine officer with a single-minded purpose—to seek out and smash the Japanese destroyer he believes sunk his former ship. Given a new command, Richardson drills his men to the point of mutiny as he relentlessly trains them for the battle ahead. At last, word comes of the destroyer’s position, and disobeying orders, Richardson finally confronts his foe, unaware that an even greater enemy lurks nearby…one that’s been targeting him for a watery grave. Directed by the great Robert Wise (Odds Against Tomorrow, The Sand Pebbles) and featuring a stellar supporting cast headed by Jack Warden (12 Angry Men), Brad Dexter (The Magnificent Seven) and Don Rickles (Kelly’s Heroes).
