Naval warfare movies any period in time= drama or documentary.

Anyone that does add one film per reply and hopefully a youtube or other link

Wow, do I have a list:

  • Das Boot:  Life aboard a German U-boat during WWII.  It has a great storyline, a movie where the viewer can almost feel the claustrophobic confinements and experience the fear and smells of life below the surface.
  • Lifeboat: Survivors of a torpedoed ship have to share the same lifeboat with the German crew that sunk them.  To me, it's an underrated Alfred Hitchcock film.
  • The Caine Mutiny: At times, it's a little corny, but the acting by Bogart, Van Johnson, Fred MacMurray, and Joe Ferrer is excellent.  
  • Mutiny on the Bounty:  Three versions have been produced.  Here, my favorite is the second one with Marlon Brando, Trevor Howard, and Richard Harris.  Just a beautiful film. After seeing it for the first time at a young age, the movie got me interested in reading the Trilogy by Nordoff and Hall (Mutiny on the Bounty, Men Against the Sea, and Pitcairn’s Island.)
  • The Enemy Below: USN destroyer versus German U-boat. Robert Mitch versus Curd Jurgens. 
  • The Sand Pebbles:  Great performances by great actors.  Set on the Yangtze River around unrest in China. Great storytelling on a human level.
  • The Great War of Archimedes:  A newer naval movie, a little hard to follow at times.  Takes place just before WWII in Japan’s quest for a super battleship.  National pride, honor, and corruption.  What is not to like?
