“Run Silent, Run Deep” (UA, 1958)

Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster do battle against the Japanese navy and each other aboard a World War II submarine.  The film’s title speaks to how submarines, during wartime, had to move stealthy… silent and deep (which often also describes the stars’ acting methods).  B&W, 93 minutes.

“Deliverance” (Warner Bros., 1972)

Four buddies have a blissful and uneventful weekend canoeing… or not.  Jon Voight and Burt Reynolds star in the film that tells how sometimes town and country don’t mix.  (Color, 109 minutes; added to the National Film Registry in 2002)
