In the opening scene with the U-boat, Captain Von Schoenvorts uses the designation SS in describing the ship he sees through the periscope. If it is a British passenger liner, the designation should be RMS; if it's supposed to be a British military ship, the designation should be HMS. The same SS designation appears on the lifeboats from the sunken ship. See more »
I do not expect anyone to believe the story that I am about to relate. It even seems incredible to me that all that I have passed through, all those weird and terrifying experiences, should have been encompassed within as short a span as three brief months. It must have been a little after 3 o'clock in the afternoon that it began - the afternoon of June 3rd, 1916.

This has everything for a budding boy to enjoy. There's monsters, the struggle against evil, a submarine and the stunningly beautiful Susan Penhaligon. I was lucky enough to see this when it came out and it enthralled me. I still watch it on television when I can, with fond memories. It is not aging well. CFXs have left it looking quite poor in places. However, for a B-Movie it is very well done. The acting, storyline, direction and editing are all well controlled. I agree that a remake may be justified, as long as the inherent innocence of it all is not lost.
It is good family fun which will keep boys glued for an afternoon. And Susan is as beautiful as ever :-)
