Director Samuel Fuller (The Naked KissShock Corridor) uncorks a mad Cold War adventure with Hell and High Water (1954), shot in CinemaScope even as it takes place mostly on a submarine commanded by Richard Widmark (Night and The City) at his toughest.

He and his cohorts are bound for the Arctic, hoping to uncover and thwart a plot to start a nuclear war with an atomic incident that will be blamed on the United States. Bella Darvi, Victor Francen, and Cameron Mitchell also star; super-cinematographer Joe MacDonald is behind the camera; and the score is by the one and only Alfred Newman.
