In his review of the film, New York Times critic Bosley Crowther misquoted the foreword, implying that the film was based on a true story in which announcements about an explosion had been made by the White House and Atomic Energy Commission. See more »

I saw this movie when it was released in theatre. I still remember how much fun it was to watch a submarine crew try to bring down a big bomber carrying the Atomic bomb with every weapon they could muster, including handguns. It had plenty of action for the time, although those used to long periods of action may find themselves disappointed. There are a couple of fairly exciting firefights, not including the final desperate attempt to save the US from being blamed for dropping an A-bomb on Korea and starting WW3. I'd like to see it again but haven't seen it in a long time..Hope it can be repeated on TV .I would definitely buy it if I had the chance..
