    The Frogmen is a film based on the exploits of the U.S. Navy's Underwater Demolition Teams during World War II. The primary task of these guys was to go in ahead of any island landing and clear away any obstacles put up by the enemy in the water. That meant going in ahead of the Marines as the Frogmen point out. Lloyd Bacon’s war thriller, starring Richard Widmark, Dana Andrews and Robert Wagner as divers with a special underwater demolition team taking the war to the Japanese in the Pacific, opens with a statement. "This is a true story based on incidents which occurred in the latter part of World War II.
