I saw it, it was named 'Operation Petticoat' with no pink in it.

In the movie, the pink sub was sighted by the Japs and announced to their forces. We intercepted the radio message and were looking for it also because we had no pink sub and thought it was an enemy trap.

In the real world, movies are a welcome diversion and fantasy, but seldon reflect the real truth. I wouldn't build any strategy on what happens in a movie.

Just because I joked about something in a movie does not mean I was not there in the real world for about 7 and half years. I do not think people should take Iran's sub as a joke. Also, the ships are painted grey and black for surface detection. Most submarines are similar in color or all black. I agree. However, green would not be an easily detected color especially in and around the coastlines. I have seen ocean water the same color of the submarine.
