A Navy Command, Lt. (jg) Ken Braden is sent on a secret mission to photograph a Japanese codebook. He is to be taken there with a submarine commanded by Paul Stevenson and then returned without the Japanese knowing they were ever there. Stevenson is a captain who follows his operational instructions closely. This approach had led to the death of a member of his crew on his last mission, and he lost the respect and support of his crew. At first, Braden and Stevenson do not quite understand each other, but eventually they develop a respect for each other.
Up Periscope is a very popular movie from 1959, one of the top movies in Drama genre. Up Periscope seems quite similar to other hollywood movies, you watch online from time to time, but it's really different, you'll be surprised. Up Periscope is kind of surprise of 1959, the rest of movies made in United States wasn't as successful as this one. I couldn't forget about the great cast, James Garner and Alan Hale Jr really did their work perfectly. Producer of Up Periscope is Gordon Douglas. After you watch whole movie, you can also find other movies directed by the same person by clicking the director name.
