Fred Zinnemann directed this biographical short subject about David Bushnell (James Bush), who revolutionized naval warfare and ocean exploration with his invention of the submarine, which Bushnell introduced during the American revolutionary war. The Ash Can Fleet was one of eighteen shorts Zinnemann made for M-G-M prior to making his American debut feature, 1942's Kid Glove Killer.
