Hallo, I need to make a list of a few of the most memorable cinematic submarine commanders; or (in a pinch) their opposing surface-ship counterparts. American Navy, ideally; but any captain with an eccentric, erratic, or bombastic personality will suit. Comedies, or straightforward war movies, or even any kind of maritime drama, all acceptable. I'm somewhat inclining my search towards intense, driven, over-the-edge characters; but even hapless, harried, and hangdog types are also of interest. 'Yes' to Richard Widmark in 'Bedford Incident', Jimmy Cagney in 'Mister Roberts', Clark Gable in 'Run Silent Run Deep', Jurgens/Mitchum in 'The Enemy Below', Cary Grant in 'Destination Tokyo' (although rather bland, better Cary Grant in 'Operation Petticoat', yes to Tom Tully (rather than Humphrey Bogart) in 'Caine Mutiny'...nix on John Wayne in 'Operation Pacific' or whatever that was called....catch my drift? Thanks in advance for any contributions!
