Run Silent Run Deep (27-Mar-1958)

Director: Robert Wise

Writer: John Gay

From novel: Run Silent, Run Deep by Cmdr. Edward L. Beach

Music by: Franz Waxman

Producer: Harold Hecht

Keywords: Action/Adventure, Submarine, WWII

After losing his submarine in the Bungo Strait to an Akikaze class destroyer nicknamed "Bungo Pete", Cmdr. Richardson is assigned a desk job at Pearl Harbor. He finagles a command as captain of the USS Nerka patrolling Japanese coastal waters, though with explicit orders to stay away from the Bungo Strait (which separates the islands of Kyushu and Shikoku). Richardson has friction with his executive officer, who feels he should have received the captaincy. The best submarine movie of its time.
