The Thunderfish's XO, Duke Gifford runs into his ex-wife and Navy nurse Mary Stuart at the hospital. There's still a spark between them but the boat is sent out on another mission before anything is resolved. When Gifford's good friend and captain, Pop Perry, is killed Gifford believe it's his fault. A inquiry clears him and after he and his men solve the problem of the misfiring torpedoes, they set out to sea. Written bygarykmcd

The Duke playing Lt. Duke Gifford (Wayne), a naval officer assigned to a dangerous mission in the Pacific where his submarine is attacked by a Japanese warship after its lured to the surface by a white flag. His pal and commander (Bond) is killed in the ensuing battle, and Wayne must defend his actions to the younger brother of his slain friend (Carey) who is in love with Wayne's ex-wife (Neal). Neal and Wayne still share a mutual affection for one another, much to Carey's chagrin (who regards Wayne as a show-pony), but Bond's death and Wayne's loyalty to his crew threatens to push Neal into Carey's arms.Melodramatic love triangle set against a WWII backdrop with a likable cast that also contains Kathryn Givney as Neal's officious commanding officer, as well as a youthful looking Martin Milner as a submarine officer and durable actor-stuntman Paul Picerni as one of Wayne's rabble-rousing crewman. Battle scenes are done on the cheap here, director Waggner opting for copious stock footage and miniatures.If you worship Wayne, or enjoy a uniformed soap-opera, then "Operation Pacific" should suffice.
