The Hunt for Red October

Soviet submarine captain disappears with his vessel from a training exercise. He tells the Soviets he is defecting. The Soviets tell the Americans he is going to launch missiles on the US. Both sides are trying to sink the Red October but a CIA analyst thinks otherwise, and tries to prove to the US forces that the Red October isn't a threat.

Mistakes

When Jack Ryan is chasing the Cook's Assistant Igor Loginov through the missile compartment, the compartment shown does not exist. Russian Typhoon submarines (of which the Red October is a variant, just with a new propulsion system) have a pair of cylindrical pressure hulls - each containing a missile compartment - on either side of the missile tubes. The location where the fight takes place in the movie would be inside a free-flood area in a real Typhoon.

Trivia

Paramount Studios essentially rented a US submarine to be in the movie. The USS Houston (SSN 713) played the USS Dallas and the surface scenes were filmed off of Long Beach, CA and Port Angelas, WA. Two crewmembers off the Houston were actually given very small speaking parts in the movie.
