SCRIPTS FROM THE CRYPT #8: THE ATOMIC SUBMARINE (HARDCOVER EDITION) by Tom Weaver
Close Encounters of the Brr Kind
Beneath the polar ice, seven submarines have
been mysteriously destroyed. The Navy must stem
this tide of undersea disasters. They send
the fleet’s killer sub, the atom-powered Tiger
Shark, to the 5,000,000 square miles of Arctic
Ocean to neutralize our nation’s newest enemy.
BATTLE STATIONS! BATTLE STATIONS!!
Their adversary is not foreign but alien: an undersea flying saucer which they dub Cyclops.
The Tiger Shark rams Cyclops, its bow piercing the saucer’s hull, and the two crafts, locked together, sink to the frigid depths. To free their sub, the men of the Tiger Shark must coldly go where no man has gone before: into the saucer.
Where the greatest horror awaits.

"Genre producer and genuine movie buff Alex Gordon recruited a cast of familiar film faces, from former "Falcon" Tom Conway to erstwhile B-western hero Bob Steele, to staff the tittle tub, a subequerous craft that runs afoul of a push underwater alien resembling a Cyclopean sock puppet. Atomic Submarine (1959) holds nostalgia value galore as the SFTCers spare no effort in covering every celluloid angle of this modest but fun affair. Captain Tom Weaver handles the production history as well as contributing script notes, Fun Facts and "in-depth" (their pun) archival interviews with filmmaker Gordon. The invaluable Dr. Robert J. Kiss again contributes a detailed account of the film's release history, citing where it played and with what, while soundtrack scholar David Schecter discuses the score, Karen Latham Everson pens a Gordon profile, and other experts chime in with key observations. And, of course, there's the complete original script, along with pressbook and images galore. As in previous series entries, the movie under the microscope is just a starting point that leads to a treasure trove of arcane info."
