POSCRIPT: Maven still recommends this movie. Why? She still
enjoys the character actors and sets!
We're talking about Dick Foran, Arthur Franz, Tom Conway, Bob Steele, Selmer Jackson, and Brett Halsey.
the story? The story is basically fifties' b-feature fare, complete with a womanizer out after the blonde who always
seems to be ready for a . . . shall we say "good time"?!
But he's called back to work on a space age atomic submarine that's sent under the Artic Circle to check out some
bizarre happenings to some of Uncle Sam's other atomic submarines.
There's a twist. . . . Brett Halsey is Dr. Carl Neilson is a pacific who has a history with Arthur Franz's Commander
Halsey's character is an early advocate of using other means to ensure peace besides the military's use of any form of weaponry
but the story handles both his and Franz's perspectives well--at least in Maven's opinion.
But this is "on the cusp," as it were, in 1959 and the military converts the Neilson.
And the creature?
Decide for yourself!
