Extremely overrated, Separate Tables stands as a so-called "classic" of the 1950s (look at that cast!) but its story is so dull that it's hard to get interested in all the pendantic romances of a group of people at a sleepy off-season resort hotel. Lancaster steals the show, but that's not saying much. The over-emotional score is way too much, as well.
Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster are on fire in this slow burner about a WWII-era U.S. submarine chasing down Gable's nemesis: a Japanese destroyer. Tame by today's standards, Run Silent, Run Deep paved the way for films like Crimson Tide.
