These three: "Run Silent, Run Deep" (1958), "Action in the North Atlantic" (1943), and "The Cruel Sea" (1953). "Run Silent, Run Deep" stars Gable and Lancaster (need I say more?) and it's based on a book by Commander Edward Beach, USN, a seasoned submariner. "Action in the North Atlantic" is a tribu...

It sure withstood a lot--Mackenzie had romances with that Australian officer, Lieutenant Commander Brumby, RAN, and the CIA man Clayton Webb. I thought "JAG" wa...
