The Bedford Incident, directed by James B. Harris, is a war movie that tells the story of the American destroyer USS Bedford after it identifies the presence of a Russian submarine in Greenland waters. As he detects the Russian submarine, Captain Eric Finlander (Richard Widmark) becomes firmly resolute to wait until the submarine will emerge, as he thinks that the Russian submarine will have to emerge soon. The hunt, which walks on the path drawn by Melville's Moby Dick, leads the whole crew to nerve crisis, bringing unbearable tension and exasperating personal relationships between soldiers. The photojournalist Ben Muncerford (Sidney Poitier), hosted on the destroyer to record a typical mission, will witness the growing hostility of the Captain, as he's seen as a civilian investigating too much in military business. They don't know it yet, but they will need each other, in order to get a safe way out of the hunt.
