    Comments about this product:

    This is 1959 war movie starring James Garner and Edmond O'Brien. It takes place in the south pacific during WWII, assignment to disrupt a Japanese held island and steal a code book.

    I gave this movie two poor remarks. Why? I became confused, got this war movie when I wanted another one. I wanted the submarine officer who got drunk on shore leave and tattooed his penis. I knew it was a TV star in a movie. So, forgive me.

    I will give you my DVD description, it has more detail.
    Ken Braden is a 90-day wonder, rushed through special training, given lieutenant's bar and thrown into World War II. He's an underwater demolitions expert who'll put his training to work in the pacific - if he survives the submarine trek to his destination, a voyage full of dive-bombing death from above and depth-charged hell below.
    On a break from TV's Maverick, James Garner plays Braden, a Navy frogman whose orders take from a stateside romance to perilous ocean warfare. Academy Award winner Edmond O'Brien as the hard-nosed skipper, Alan Hale (Gilligan's Island) as a dead-eye gunner, football great Frank Gifford, Edward (77 Sunset Strip) Byres and his first film, an unbilled Warren Oakes, are all on board.

    Below are my comments on this movie.
    James Garner was good at sneaking around the island. He just didn't watch the time carefully enough. Now, he couldn't find his submarine!

    Did O'Brien, almost out of air, wait? Watch, he was very clear about how long he would wait for him perform the mission!

    Although disappointed, I can't say anything genuine wrong about the performances. You choose, now that you have more information.
