John Sayles on

The Enemy Below

Released 1957
Distributor 20th Century Fox

A naval commander and a German U-Boat captain form a mutual admiration society in director Dick Powell’s The Enemy Below. Robert Mitchum plays the crusty Captain Murrell and Curt Jürgens is his—slightly—sympathetic counterpart, submarine commander Capt. Von Stolberg. Darryl F. Zanuck, longtime head of 20th Century Fox, has a cameo as a navy cook.
