When command of an American sub is placed in the hands of a dictatorial officer (Clark Gable) who lost his prior ship in battle with the Japanese, the crew is suspicious and resentful, the passed-over second officer (Burt Lancaster) most of all. Will the captain's Ahab-like quest for a rematch with the enemy destroyer end in tragedy? Robert Wise's subsea WWII saga co-stars Jack Warden, Brad Dexter, and (in his film debut) Don Rickles. 93 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English; Subtitles: English.
