The two young lovers, caught up in a world war. How desperately Lieutenant Braden (James Garner) wants to marry the pretty Sally Johnson (Andra Martin). He's madly in love with her and cannot understand why she appears to feel the same way towards he, but keeps telling him to wait! The tears come flooding out of this most "female" lady and Braden is quite beside himself with passion, love and heartache! Little does he know that she has been sent on a secret assignment, to ensure his credentials are bona-fide, for a critical mission to capture a Japanese radio code.

Without notice, he is whisked away from his new love to a dangerous and daring mission, which he has to go on alone; a mission that he is told he must not be caught undertaking!! A "strictly by the book" submarine commander seems determined to scupper his mission, by refusing to take the submarine near enough so the brave Lieutenant won't have too far to swim under water. However, after a few "home truths", a brave repair carried out underwater after an enemy air attack, a tragedy and a bit of plain bad luck, Commander Stevenson shows his human side; a side that has been masked by his huge responsibility and the reality of war. He isn't normally a risk taker, but the mission is vital and, aside from it all, he probably feels compassion for Braden.

The film has a mixture of humour, tragedy and excitement. There is a considerably real feel, especially as the actual mission begins in earnest, with Braden on his own on a Japanese-controlled island. Whilst not being particularly "fast-paced", this does not detract from the film's qualities: it is an excellent story and one that is very plausible and certainly not dull or too slow.

Tricky. It's a decent film, lovely to look at with its scope photography and technicolor palettes, James Garner and Edmond O'Brien are holding court in the acting stakes, and of course this being a submarine war film it has the requisite claustrophobic feel. Yet it never really gels as a whole, submerging too far into the mundane to play out a whole bunch of sequences that test the patience of the viewer. There's also the not too small problem of being able to suspend disbelief with the final mission.

Now this is Hollywood and a Warner Brothers film, in 1959, so we don't naturally expect realism in our story telling, in fact we often want incredulity to stir the blood, but this kinda takes the rise too far. Alan Hale Junior is on hand for comic relief, and this proves good foil for Garner's lovable charm, but Gordon Douglas directs at such a snails pace you get the feeling that the comedy is just a merciful release for all involved. In short there's both the good and bad of 1950s war film making on show here; production value is high - narrative thrust is tepid. 6/10

I was taken by my parents to see this when I was 9 or 10, also with my best friend from a few doors away. It became the inspiration for weeks of submarine-based play, with our subs being constructed from chairs and towels and clothes horses. So I have a great affection for this film. A great story, with all the boyhood ideals of heroism and danger. Good to watch again, and to have in my collection.

Although the sellers information was correct, it was not made clear as to how you changed things so that the speech was in English and with no Spanish subtitles. However, this apart everything else was OK with the transaction.
