Bob's Submarine Film List

Most of these films should have submarines playing a significant part in the story, though some might just be token appearances. Where possible, I've included the actual submarines that appear in the film (if anyone has more detailed information, or additional films, please leave a note in the comments section).

Organized in the following sub-categories by production date (click "Read Notes"):

Pre-WWII
WWII
Cold War
Post Cold War
Non-military Drama
Sci-Fi/Fantasy
Documentary

This list is dedicated to my good friend (and former submariner) Fred Durrette.
