During World War II, an American destroyer meets a German U-Boat. Both captains are experts, and so begins a deadly game of cat-and-mouse.
(at around 62 mins) The Captain calls a conference of all officers and chiefs in the wardroom. At the left rear of the wardroom there is a chief in blue clothing with a blue May West life preserver--it is Zanuck, who at the time was the head of 20th Century-Fox Pictures.
Jahwol, Herr Kapitan.
Von Stolberg: That boy needs to learn we do not salute at sea.
After the u-boat's first torpedo attack on the DE the captain orders 18 knots and turns to attack. No anti-submarine vessel would have increased to this speed, since anything over about 15 knots was too fast for the sonar to work effectively, and the sonar was required for the coming attack.
