The acting is of a very high standard indeed. Borgnine is as good as you would hope for from a man of his outstanding ability. Hudson puts in possibly his finest performance, and McGoohan is his usual self in a role that he made his own in the 1960s in Danger Man and The Prisoner. The suporting cast is first-rate too; these people clearly took pride in their art.
The direction is particularly compelling. It remains spectacularly well shot, and lit, with real imagination. Some of the effects show their age a little bit (not as much, or as frequently as you might imagine though), and it's a pity that the model MiG 21s that are in one shot are suddenly replaced in the next by a real flyby of F4 Phantoms, but I'm nit-picking. The sound is good too -nice subtle effects, and an emphasis on dialoge clarity. The music is amazing -it's a very good score, well performed.
Overall, the DVD is a very good effort too. Packaging is standard, but that's OK with me -it works. The visual transfer is one of the best I've seen from the period, surpassed only by the treatment afforded Kubrick's masterpieces.Read more ›
A satellite re-enters the atmosphere and ejects a capsule which parachutes to the Arctic. Very soon after Commander James Ferraday (Rock Hudson), captain of the U.S. nuclear attack submarine USS "Tigerfish" (SSN-509), stationed at Holy Loch, Scotland, is ordered to make sail to the Arctic (small precision here – in real life there never was a US submarine named "Tigerfish"). His mission is to rescue the personnel of Drift Ice Station Zebra, a British civilian scientific weather station moving with the ice pack. However, as he welcomes on board a British intelligence agent "Mr. Jones" (Patrick McGoohan), a whole platoon of heavily armed US Marines under Captain Anders (Jim Brown) and Boris Vaslov (Ernest Borgnine), a Russian defector who is a colleague of "Mr. Jones", it becomes quickly obvious that the mission is actually a cover for a more dangerous, highly classified assignment. And then the film begins.
This could have been a very good spy/action thriller.Read more ›

A good cold war drama. Submarine scenes convincing. Ending a little tricky to follow. Patrick McGoohan took time off from filming The Prisoner to star in this film! Read morePublished 5 months ago by mikeljon
