Every so often, YouTube Movies does something incredibly cool, and this time around, they’ve released Robert Wise’s 1958 classic submarine movie [u]Run Silent, Run Deep[/u] staring Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster. Robert Wise is one of my favorite directors because there wasn’t a genera he didn’t do. He started as an editor on Citizen Kane, directed The Sand Pebbles, West Side Story, The Day The Earth Stood Still (the great one), Sound of Music, The Haunting (again, the good one), The Andromeda Strain (again, the good one), and next year Paramount is finally spending the money they should have in 1999 to make a 4K UHD transfer of his director’s cut of Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

Here’s the Youtube description of this movie and I hope you all enjoy it.

quote:
In this powerful; classic military drama; Rich Richardson (Clark Gable; "The Misfits") is a hard-driving; dedicated submarine officer with a single-minded purpose - to seek out and smash the Japanese destroyer he believes sunk his former ship. Given a new command; Richardson drills his men and first officer Jim Bledsoe (Burt Lancaster; "Elmer Gantry") to point of mutiny as he relentlessly trains them for the battle ahead. At last; word comes of the destroyer's position; and disobeying orders; Richardson finally confronts his foe; unaware that and even greater enemy lurks nearby - one who's been targeting him for a watery grave. Directed by Robert Wise; the legendary director of "West Side Story;" with a stellar supporting cast headed by Jack Warden; Brad Dexter and Don Rickles.

Thanks for the heads up. It's a movie I saw on TV with my father. But it was in B&W. Was that because our TV was B&W, or is this colorized?

YouTube says I can't watch it with my Brave browser. WTF?

Seems they've restricted movie viewing to these browsers only

It’s always in black and white. Youtube is just using the movie poster/DVD cover as a thumbnail.

Got it. I know I've seen it a few times, and I always remember B&W.

The wife and I were on a submarine movie kick a couple years ago. Got this one, and didn't even make it halfway. I like Lancaster and Gable well enough, but this movie didn't grab me like any of the other submarine movies did. Das Boot will likely never be dethroned as the ultimate submarine movie. U571, Crimson Tide, K19, and even the newer Hunter Killer are all preferred, in my opinion, when compared to RSRD.

That’s your problem. You stopped halfway.

Well color me curious then. Now I wanna see the end. Ugh. I'll have to see if the library has it.

That being said, if a movie needs your patience through the first half, to reap the rewards of a good back half, it better be damn good back half.

It does come together. And you can watch it free on YouTube. I will say the Japanese convoy is not exactly what it appears to be.

+ 'The Hunt for Red October', 'The Enemy Below', and 'Morning Departure'. Honorable mention: 'Gray Lady Down'.

It's been a while since I watched Red October, but I remember considering it more of a Clancy/Ryan movie than a submarine movie. I'll have to look into those others.

“Hunt For Red October” seemed more like a submarine movie that just happened to have Jack Ryan in it. Ryan never felt like the main protagonist, but more of a side character that figured out Ramius’ plan. It’s also a reason I really didn’t care for “Patriot Games” or “Clear And Present Danger.” They felt like they were in a completely different series and didn’t attract me.

“The Enemy Below” was a good one, too.

Man, CaPD is one of my favorites of all time. Love that friggen movie. I am NOT well-read in Clancy's books, so I approach that movie not knowing or caring how it compares to the book, and I love it. It pretty much defined my idea of "special ops" when I as growing up, and I love the political drama in it now too, as an adult. Don't care for Patriot Games at all though. Tangent complete. Sorry. Had to give a shout-out to CaPD.

I'll have to re-watch Red October.

The submarine used in all the exterior shots was the USS Redfish SS395. My father was a plank owner serving on it during WW2. I lost count of how many times I saw that movie.

Chicago and San Fancisco don't have much to offer these days as concerns visiting, in my opinion, but if you ever get to the former, make a stop at the Museum of Science and Industry and see the U505 display. They took it from the outside where it was probably falling apart and built a huge underground hall for this amazing Gernman U-boat (WW1 design, but served in WW2). They refurbished it; even had the engines put back into running condition! I've always wondered how many movie set designers toured it over the years.
In SF, there's the USS Pampanito floating in the bay (WW2 design)(I think it may have been used in "Down Periscope"); another great tour. We did that a number of years ago and one of the ship's officers was there with his grandson; a real honor to meet him (his name was on one of the officer's quarter's doorway).

Para's Lawrence of Arabia thread reminded me of another excellent submarine-related movie: Murphy's War. The submarine plays the role of antagonist to Peter O'Toole's main character. Awesome movie. The flight scenes are friggen wicked.

I would agree Das Boot is king of the submarine movies, but Black Sea with Jude Law is another pretty good one.
