The great Robert Mitchum (The Wonderful Country) and Curt Jurgens (The Spy Who Loved Me) star in this gripping World War II drama about an American destroyer and a German U-boat stalking each other at sea. Capt. Murrell (Mitchum) and Capt. Von Stolberg (Jürgens) try to outthink and outmaneuver each other in this engrossing duel of wits, as the chase becomes a deadly game of chess in which any mistake can bring instant disaster. Winner of the 1957 Academy Award for Best Special Effects, The Enemy Below was directed by Hollywood star and frequent director Dick Powell (Split Second). Theodore Bikel (I Want to Live, Shattered) co-stars as Stolberg s lieutenant.
