Audience Reviews for Submarine Command (The Submarine Story)


Stock war story with the advantage of having William Holden in the lead. This is the kind of picture that was cranked out by all the studios at the time. Compactedly put together and told usually built around an established star to keep them in the spotlight while a more prestigious film was either put together or sought. Fine of it's type but that type is average.
