Great book, and good movie. Watching it now on TV.


Anyone else?

+1 on great book!

Haven't ever seen the movie. Only get CBS on the tube. Still haven't seen it.

Grocery store had it last spring in a special display/purchase. But by the time payday rolled around they'd taken the display down.

A pretty good submarine movie with Clark Gable & Burt Lancaster starring. It is in the same league with Das Boot and Crimson Tide, just much older.

Actually, I hated the book, liked the movie.

Both great movies-good suspenseful, wartime drama. Men against men, the hunter and the hunted. Two thumbs up!

Read the book long ago. Author died a few years ago.

Both are great. The Book is better though.

Other good movies:
Das Boot
The Enemy Below
War in the Pacific

Great movie, especially for its time.

Still, the conflict between Gable and Lancaster always struck me as a bit overdone.
