Hellcats of the Navy (1957)

Based on a true story, Hellcats of the Navy recounts the daring World War II missions of a submarine crew tasked with navigating through enemy minefields.  It is also a humbling portrayal of the split-second life-and-death decisions the sub’s commander must make along the way.  The only film that Ronald and Nancy (Davis) Reagan starred in together, Hellcats also features a prologue by Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz.
