Fairly interesting WW II submarine film starring Garner as a rebellious demolition specialist assigned to serve on a sub commanded by O'Brien, a nasty captain who does everything by the book. Garner's mission is to venture to a tiny Japanese-held island and obtain a secret code. Once the

sub reaches the island, Garner must sneak into the Japanese compound, locate the top-secret code book, and bring it back to the sub for deciphering. En route to the island, Garner and O'Brien bicker about how to run the ship, and there is a distinct possibility that O'Brien will not wait too long

for Garner to complete his mission before taking the sub back underwater. It's Pretty routine stuff, but well-played. In the mess hall look for a young Warren Oats as a sailor who is always eating.
