Trivia:
The Japanese submarine crew were extras hired because they were Asian. Most were typical laid-back Southern Californians, and none had any acting training. Toshirô Mifune (an actual Japanese World War II veteran) was so outraged at their attitudes, that he asked Steven Spielberg if he could deal with them. He then started yelling at them to get in line, and slapped one of them, saying, "This is how Japanese men are trained!" Mifune worked with them from that point on.

It took so long to set up the final shot of the film, that cast and crew members started a betting pool on what day and time the shot would begin filming. Dan Aykroyd won the bet.
