John Farrow (The Big Clock) directs a story and screenplay by Jonathan Latimer (Night Has a Thousand Eyes, Alias Nick Beal) which takes a very early look at what would later be called Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Screen icon William Holden (Stalag 17) stars as WWII Lieutenant Commander Ken White, who orders the submarine USS Tiger Shark to crash dive in order to evade a Japanese aerial attack. While the maneuver saves the submarine, it consequently kills the captain and another crewman. White is promoted, but the events on the Tiger Shark continue to haunt him and also disrupt his relationship with his wife Carol (Nancy Olson, Union Station). Eventually, he takes a desk job. But when the Korean War flares up, White is called back to active duty and asked to command the Tiger Shark once more. One of the very first dramas to tackle the psychological consequences of war, Submarine Command also features first-class work from William Bendix (Lifeboat) and Don Taylor (The Naked City).
