Movie Info

Lt. (jg) Ken Braden (James Garner) is a US Navy frogman and underwater demolitions expert who is assigned to a vital mission, and to a submarine captained by Commander Stevenson Edmond O'Brien. But Stevenson is a CO who may have seen too many men die -- the two immediately come into conflict over Braden's presence on the boat and his mission, a top secret foray into Japanese waters that jeopardizes the boat. The captain, in his strict adherence to regulations, makes it as difficult as possible

Audience Reviews for Up Periscope

A great WWII Submarine War film, showing lots of real footage. Lots of old school actors in this one. James Gardner is on a secret mission on a submarine where he's smuggled into an area of a Japanese island to find a transmitter and a secret code. The subs crew just came from a mission where a jr sailor was killed, moral is low. Great picture quality, a top war movie 4 1/2 stars.
