Destination Tokyo (Warner 1943, Cary Grant John Garfield)

Destination Tokyo

Destination Tokyo is a men-under-fire drama under the sea lifted by the high-calibre cast. The crew of a U.S. submarine sent into Japanese waters learns to work together while cruising into danger.

In the movie one character explains that the Germans and Japanese are fundamentally evil while the Russians and Chinese are good. By the time Destination Tokyo aired on TV, few prints of the film contained this scene.
