Commentator: Walter Huston

Clark Gable stars as submarine commander Howard Gilmore in this story of a man who in a few short months became a legend. It is the story of the words he spoke before he died, “Take her down,” he said. But living men make legends and so this is the story of the man told by those who knew him and loved him best when he was alive, his wife and the men of his command.
