    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.
