This is your Turner Classic Movie channel alert!
Tonight...Destination Tokyo(1944), 8pm est
"A U.S. sub braves enemy waters during World War II."
Overview & Cast
That is one of the good ones.
‘Destination Tokyo’ is one of the best submarine films of the WWII genre.
‘Battleground’ ain’t bad either for the Airborne Infantry side of the house.
Great Film,,,,Thanks for the heads up Vision.....Cast :
Cary Grant John Garfield Alan Hale John Ridgely Dane Clark Warner Anderson William Prince ....
Yea, I noticed those while setting up this weeks DVR recordings last night. I also added the “Fighting 69th” with James Cagney to the recording schedule.
Tony Curtis (actor), was 18 when he saw this movie, inspired to join the Navy, served aboard a sub tender during WWII
Love this movie. They should put “30 Seconds Over Tokyo” on immediately following. In that movie, the sub in Tokyo Bay is mentioned.
Agreed. Will look forward to Battleground and Fighting 69th.
Thanks! I recorded it looking forward to watching this week.
