‘Operation Pacific’ Movie Summary

Operation Pacific is a war movie. Or maybe it’s a romance film. I’m not sure, and neither is the film.

The movie follows the naval adventures of Lt. Cmdr. Duke Gifford, a career naval officer in the middle of World War II fighting the Japanese navy. Duke has dedicated his life to the sea, and has even given up on his marriage to the much younger, Mary Stuart. Mary lost her husband to his mistress, which is long, phallic, loves to be wet, and is full of seaman. And no Lori, it is not what you are thinking. Duke’s mistress is his submarine, the Thunderfish, which coincidentally is Chris’ porn stage name.

The Thunderfish is having some trouble. In addition to being constantly hunted by the Japanese navy, the Thunderfish is shooting blanks. I mean, the sub’s swimmers are not hitting their target. Boy, are we lucky that Chris is not on the episode to talk about symbolism. Essentially, the problem is the torpedoes are not blowing shit up when they should.

  1. Surprised that Patrick was so surprised that Quo Vadis was the number 1 movie of 1951. It was a biblical epic type of film. Those films were essentially the superhero films of the 50s, they almost all were huge hits. Even today 10 commandments remains one of the 10 highest grossing films of all time adjusted for inflation. In retrospect I’m sort of surprised Quo Vadis didn’t receive best picture that year, considering what a massive production it was.
