Trivia

When arriving in Panama, the submarine marked "P2" on the conning tower is the U.S.S. Pike (SS-173). Commissioned in 1935 at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, it was the first submarine to have an all-welded hull, allowing greater dive depths and protection from depth charges versus subs with riveted hulls. She performed four war patrols from 1941 to 1943 when she returned to the sub base at New London, CT to act as a training boat. From 1946 to 1956 she was used for Naval Reserve training at Baltimore, MD and was then sold for scrap in 1957. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the movie Naval personnel are shown wearing their covers (hats) indoors. In the U.S. Navy covers are only worn indoors if a person is on watch, therefore almost every occurrence in the movie is incorrect. See more »

SUBSUNK rescue
20 March 2004 | by Jim TrittenSee all my reviews

Enjoyable inter-War military adventure drama featuring the U.S. Navy submarine service. Based upon the story "Submarine 262" by Frank "Spig" Wead, who wrote a number of similar screenplays highlighting various parts of the fleet. This particular drama features the use of the McCann Rescue Chamber and Momsen Lung in a dramatic rescue of men from a sunken submarine off the coast of Point Loma, California. George Brent is remarkably low key and effective as the Commanding Officer. Also included is a love triangle between Chief Petty Officer Butch Rogers (Pat O'Brien), Petty Officer First Class (later Chief Petty Officer) Sock McGillis (Wayne Morris), and Ann Sawyer (Doris Weston). Comic relief by Lucky (Frank McHugh). Some development of what it takes to be a successful sailor in the submarine service - the ship is as strong as its weakest sailor. A young Broderick Crawford appears in a small part and Ronald Reagan was cast in one of his earliest appearances in a bit part but his scenes were left on the cutting room floor. Good shots of the rest of the Pacific Fleet as they work through Fleet Problem 20. Recommended.
