Due to my new interest in RC subs, I re-paid a visit to an ol' DVD of mine... "Grey Lady Down".

I noticed a few bloopers or items that were not just right...

.... anyone else care to add or comment about this movie?

I have not seen that movie in years. I just remember the DSRV trying to save the crew and the sub then sliding off the edge.

If I'm not mistaken, the submarine was mostly stock footage of the boat in Ice Station Zebra. I would love to know where the model used for that movie went to or if anyone has footage of the boat as they filed the FX for ISZ. One has to admit that the FX of the sub under the ice pack was first rate for a 60's flick.
