Hunt for Red October, The - Submarines Can See You.
In the movie when the Red October is running on silent propulsion through the underwater canyon and the Dallas hears the Red October and is following her. Because the Red October is running silent propulsion there is no cavitation, so the Red Octobers sonar should have picked up the Dallas and there would have been no need to do a Crazy Ivan.

the dallas was right behind the red october hiding in her baffles thus creating a blind spot. so the dallas wouldn't of shown up in the radar.

Actually it was a reference to the propulsion, not the baffles. But who says the caterpillar does not create any cavitation? BTW, modern submarines often have a towed array trailing behind, which can listen 360degrees, hence the crazy ivan would be useless as well.

this movie took place in the 1980's so the subs didnt have towed sonar ray. not to mention subs are notoriously blind directly aft which is called the baffles. most of but not all of the modern subs today have towed sonar ray.
