Review by Brendon Hanley

Run Silent, Run Deep stands out from the glut of late 1950s submarine movies thanks to the intriguing John Gay script, skilled direction by Robert Wise, and the sheer star power of Burt Lancaster and Clark Gable. Wise creates a tense, foreboding atmosphere, heightened by the palpable animosity that the two actors bring to their roles. Lancaster also co-produced the adventure; lesser-regarded examples of the genre include Enemy Below (1957), Hellcats of the Navy (1957), Torpedo Run (1958), and Up Periscope (1959).
