Pandemonium breaks out when a Soviet submarine runs aground on a sandbar near the fictional New England burg of Gloucester Island in Jewison’s hysterical Cold War comedy, kept moving along at the speed of panic thanks to the dab-handed cutting of Ashby, reunited with The Cincinnati Kid director. With an ensemble cast that’s a dream team of comedic talent, including Carl Reiner, Jonathan Winters, and Alan Arkin, playing the harried leader of the Russian landing party, Jewison’s satire pointedly skewers both Soviet and American prejudices, and even received a rapturous reception in the USSR.
