Submarine Attack (I.F.E. Releasing, 1954)

Re-released in 1959 as Torpedo Zone.+ In this adventure, the commander of an Italian submarine scuttles a ship and ends up saving the survivors. He must then make the difficult decision about whether they should live or die. (allmovie)

This Italian movie is only incidentally about life aboard a submarine during the Second World War. It is no epic adventure like the more famous DAS BOOT or RUN SILENT, RUN DEEP. Rather it is a quiet reflective anti-war film about the dilemmas of good human beings trapped by the exigencies and ironies of war. (more on imdb)

Why We Love Movies About Submarines

“I saw the submariners, the way they stood aloof and silent, watching their pigboat with loving eyes. They are alone in the Navy. I admired the PT boys. And I often wondered how the aviators had the courage to go out day after day and I forgave their boasting. But the submariners! In the entire fleet they stand apart!”
 James Michener
 Tales of The South Pacific

Since their invention  and first use in warfare, submarines and their crews have attracted the attention of artists, writers, and filmmakers. The submarine is a closed, claustrophobic world. A space where men are protected from a dark and alien world outside, as much at threat from the elements as from their often unseen and barely audible elements. The perfect setting for even the low budget wannabe auteur or shlock jockey with a script about men under pressure, the perils they face and the death they bring from a tin can under the waves. The woosh of torpedoes and the ping of sonar are movie staples from Das Boot to Red October. They are indeed not like other ships… and their crews; not like other sailors.

Run silent, run deep…
