An American tanker's sunk by a German U-boat and the survivors spend 11 days at sea on a raft. Their next assignment; bound for Murmansk through the sub-stalked N. Atlantic.
The aircraft used to attack the Sea Witch were Heinkel HE-59 biplanes.
For a sailor's wife war is just another storm.
Most of the miniature shots of the German U boats are, in reality models of American Gato class fleet boats and bear almost no similarity to a U boat - other than the fact they're both submarines.
The colorized version and many b&w TV prints, are edited to fit a two-hour time slot. Most of the cuts involve the interactions of the crew (notably Alan Hale Sr) in the rec room and virtually all of Raymond Massey's domestic scenes with Ruth Gordon with the exception of his actual arrival home. Also omitted are most of the scenes of the cook, extended scenes of the destruction of Massey's ship early on as well as several interstitial and transitional scenes.
