LAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaame
This was in the recent batch of VHS tapes a co-worker loaned me, and came recommended very strongly.

"There is no love angle in this movie, no women," he says. And indeed it's just a bunch of men running around, trying to figure out what's going on up at Ice Station Zebra.

Rock Hudson is the commander of the US submarine that is taking British agent Patrick McGoohan on his secret mission. Jim Brown comes aboard as a stern Marine captain. And, what a surprise, Ernest Borgnine is a Russian agent who comes aboard at the same time. I missed his name in the opening credits, so it was a genuine surprise for me and it made me smile the rest of the way through the picture.

Then there's some unintentional comedy from Rock Hudson: "I'm commander of this submarine and I am not sticking another torpedo up that spout."

Looks really dated, but I can't imagine this being a decent film back in the day. For an "action" film there isn't much going on and everything just feels half-baked. Overlong too. I don't know why this film tried to be some kind of epic. Sturges must of lost his mind by then.
