Abandon Ship! (1957) - Thirty-seven Survived The entire credit sequence was a slow camera move into this rusted, derelict mine, ending in the explosion, grim narration from writer-director Richard Sale, and the introduction of producer and star Tyrone Power, joining a raft with Finlay Currie, Robert Harris and distraught mother Sheila Manahan, in the British-made Columbia release, Abandon Ship, 1957.
Torpedo Run (1958) - Good Old Fujiyama Sighting land in their chase after a Japanese battleship, Sloan (Ernest Borgnine) and Commander Doyle (Glenn Ford) elect to surface, with Lt. Foley (Dean Jones) running late, in Torpedo Run, 1958.

Torpedo Run (1958) - I'm A Bad Risk Ending a sequence in which Cmdr. Doyle (Glenn Ford) had to torpedo the transport ship carrying his wife and daughter, because it was used to “screen” a Japanese ship he was obligated to attack, a flashback to his courtship with Jane (Diane Brewster), with his best-buddy Lt.

Strange Cargo (1940) - Go Away Pig Joining the first scene for Joan Crawford (as entertainer "Julie"), she rejects hustler Peter Lorre (his character really is named "Pig"), then has trouble with laborer-convict Verne (Clark Gable), working the wharf at a French penal colony in Guiana, in Frank Borzage's Strange Cargo, 1940.
