The Spoon is happy to announce that Sadie from Sadie, Sadie, Married Lady is our Name That Movie Champion!
I'm very impressed with Sadie's resourcefulness as the contest picture was not only just a head shot, but not even an attractive head shot either. That's like an automatic two strikes against figuring out the answer. But Sadie perserved and deserves mad, wicked, sick props. Or something.
Red October centers around the actions of CIA analyst turned super badass agent (kind of) Jack Ryan (played by some dude named Alec Baldwin - never heart of him). This movie (and book) marks Ryan's first of many apperances in the Clancy universe. It also follows him as he uncovers the secret motives of a Russian captain who may or may not wish to defect to America with a super bad ass submarine named Red October.
Hint#2: Brought the term "caterpillar" back into the water.
What makes the Red October so special is it's underwater propulsion system which is able to use state of the art technology, code named: caterpillar drives, (that don't actually exist) to run almost completely silent. This is a major bonus to submarines that want to kill stuff without being killed in return. It's also a big reason why the Russkies do not want the Americans to get access to its technology.
Sean Connery is the captain of the sub, instantly raising the Red October's hotness rating by a factor of 10.
