"Remarkably heroic and suspenseful action. The Warners really sweat you out with this one." - Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

What the World War II-era film Air Force is to the skies, Destination Tokyo is to the seas. In the only military-action film he made during the was, Cary Grant plays Captain Cassidy of the U.S. submarine Copperfin, skippering his torpedo-laden thunderfish with courage and resourcefulness as it makes its battle-strewn way from San Francisco to the Aleutians and into the enemy's front yard. Under the trim, taut direction of Delmar Daves (his directorial debut), John Garfield leads a stellar array of costars as boys-next-door gone to war. "One of the most rousing, action-filled WWII films ever produced with a powerful cast and terrific story, Destination Tokyo remains a classic war drama to this day" (The Motion Picture Guide).

              Like movies about history. I think more young people should watch these movies to learn about the history of our Country and our military.

                    Comments about this product:

                    It's easy to enjoy a good war movie. When you add Cary Grant, it just gets better! He is the only actor I know of that is capable of being suave on a sub full of men without endearing himself to them or being intimidating! He played his character with a very cool demeanor. Giving a tough exterior then dropping that for the softer, more humane, side with a tender story about he and his son in the barbershop.
                    This being a submarine story, cinematography really doesn't come into play; how many views are there of the inside of a WWII sub?
                    The story, however, is one of a lesser known, less spoken of tale of our being inside Tokyo Bay! That always makes for an exciting story, if you take the time to include good actors, such as Cary Grant, Alan Hale, John Forsythe, John Garfield, to name a few. They had a strong cast, and it paid off!
