Details

This superior Cold War sea drama-cum-chase movie was directed by Stanley Kubrick's one-time producer James B Harris, and explores similar nuclear fears to Kubrick's Dr Strangelove. The captain of a US naval destroyer (Richard Widmark) pursues a Russian submarine through the Arctic, ready to give the command for an atomic attack. Sidney Poitier plays the journalist along for the ride. His moral indignation is put to the test by the captain's obsession with forcing the sub to the surface.
