  • This wartime comedy became a box office hit in 1959, and gave Universal its highest-grossing film up to that time. Cary Grant stars as the hapless skipper of a pink submarine during World War II. Much of the movie was filmed in Key West, where filmmakers made use of the local naval installations, as well as the tropical scenery.
