Destination Tokyo plus Thunderbolt

Destination Tokyo
“Meanwhile, beneath the surface of the Pacific, the S.S. Copperfin, Cary Grant commanding, is underway for Tokyo on a daring mission to land a meteorologist so he can provide weather information for Doolittle's raid on Tokyo. There are tense underwater moments - a dive bomber attack, a mine field to negotiate, attack by a Japanese aircraft carrier, depth charges et al - before the sub limps into San Francisco Bay, her mission accomplished. An exciting, no-nonsense tribute to the submarine service, Destination Tokyo is convincing enough to have been used as an instructional film by the U.S. Navy.”
